    As for Mac users, I doubt they'll be deterred by the drop in security. After all, I kept using Windows XP till recently, though it was branded as the least secure system, and never had any trouble, not even after patching stopped.
    Russia has a different philosophy on hacking / reverse engineering. They actually teach it in their schools.
    I respect that. You should give your children -every- advantage possible.

    And no. MAC users will probably not be deterred at all.

    Because most of Mac users I came across are totally ignorant & expect world to bow to them because they have money to buy Apple hardware (which therefore must be "safe & sound")
    Yet in reality they know nothing
