I would like to know why the Product page for OSX doesn't have a section on unpatched Advisories.
I mean that is the whole reason why people would use this page. We wouldn't really care (although the numbers do cause concern) about the quantity of advisories and vulnerabilities. We need to know how many are still unpatched.
There is a section for Win7, XP, even IBM OS/400 6.x..

There is a section for Windows XP (Windows NT 5.1), Windows Vista (Windows NT 6.0) and Windows 7 (Windows NT 6.1), ¿ Where are the sections for Panther (OS X 10.3), Tiger (OS X 10.4), Leopard (OS X 10.5) and Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6)?

Take a look at the listings for most OSs or applications. Each listing has a title similar to "Product - type vulnerability" or "Product - multiple vulnerabilities".

Now look at the listings for Mac OS (any version). With the exception of the latest entry, all other entries have titles like "Mac OS version patch fixes type vulnerability" or "Mac OS version patch fixes multiple vulnerabilities".

Maybe the staff at Secunia are Mac fan-boys who can't bring themselves to believe that their beloved OS could have a "vulnerability" and console themselves by calling it a "patch" instead?

I don't think you'll start a Mac v PC war here.

Strangely, all the products Secunia sells are for Windows. I doubt they pay much attention to Apple. They are probably just listing them for completeness.
