If you have to go back to ME your credentials are very suspect!

Windows ME release date: September 14, 2000
Apple OS X release date: March 24, 2001

Now, you want to tell me again how my choice of operating systems for purpose of comparison makes my credentials "very suspect?" I chose what I chose for a VERY specific reason. ME was a steaming pile of unstable diarrhea. OS X has been the closest anybody's come to breaking the MSFT monopoly. Their initial releases were only six months apart, but the differences in out-of-the-box security were immense, and played an integral part in forcing MSFT to own up and make security a focus rather than an afterthought.
