Is Snow Leopard 'vulnerable to attacks?' Has Apple really abandoned it?

"Apple retires Snow Leopard from support, leaves 1 in 5 Mac vulnerable to attacks," reads the headline on Computerworld. Is it the end for Apple's venerable OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" operating system, and are you at risk if you're still using it? Hardly.

(Do the world a favor and don't click on that link. I put it here in the interest of full disclosure, but let's not reward bad behavior.)

What Mac OS X Snow Leopard Means for the Future of the iPhone

On Friday, Apple shipped Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, their latest computer operating system (which is jailbreaker safe!), and for the first time focus wasn't on fabulous new consumer-facing features, but on internal re-architecting, the (far too often quoted) refinements and enhancements.
