The difference at play is critical:
On a Mac the user has to at least do something explcit, while on Windows
unless you've specifically reconfigured your system you have no choice
-- simply inserting the CD triggers the auto-run which in turn triggers
the installation of the malware gateway.
Welcome to the joys of auto-run.
Too bad Bill doesn't simply teach his users how to open a CD instead.
