Mac OS X "world's safest" operating system

As if we didn't know that already, there's more info now. Mac OS X (based on Darwin) and BSD outperform both Microsoft Windows and Linux in security. I'm sure we'll read about "only coz of market share" and the likes, but to evaluators: Does it really matter why it's the safest? (And I think there's more to it than just lack of market share...)

iPod Download

Been using that nice plugin which allows to get songs from an iPod from within iTunes? Stopped working in iTunes 4.7, eh? Well: You can use HexEdit to change that. Open "/Applications/iTunes/Content/MacOS/iTunes" and look for 'iPod Download'. Then change that to read, for example, 'iPod Dawnload'. Make sure _not_ to remove or add a character, though, just replace one. After saving that 'work', iTunes and iPod Download will work again as expected.
