No OS is bullet proof ... not even Windows 7, but with a good dose of common sense and a decent anti-virus/firewall you should be fairly safe...

Welcome to the forums!!
Agreed, even snow leopard is unsafe (so I've read).

Though I'm not sure how to take this thread, does he mean security threats, competition threats, etc.?

Competitors don't even enter my mind, so I would assume security threats..

I think the biggest threat to Windows 7 would be a super volcanic eruption, I don't think "global warming" will effect it as that is a lie

Windows 7 is a treat in itself

Now, talking of threats....It's been pretty much covered. Your system is only as safe as the user, i'm a safe user but still use antivirus software for piece of mind. There will allways be programmers out there that will try to write software/virus that will break any security wall.....
