Gimme a break. I'm tired of hearing people say that there are no Extensions. What on earth do you think lives in the /System/Library/Extensions folder? They are extensions, and can hose your system without a problem -- try dereferencing a null pointer in a KEXT and you'll crash the kernel without fail. Mac OS X DOES HAVE EXTENSIONS, they are just in a different form, and possibly arguably, more dangerous than ever before!
