Well ... Yes and No!

Both Mac and Winders can be configured in what amounts to being  
'promiscuous' mode, that is to say you tell it to 'connect to  
anything that offers a connection.' I dunno about you but most people  
I know who are regular mobile users are configured in this fashion.

  In this region (NW Vermont USA), wide open access points run about  
50%. Except in the University of Vermont area in Burlington where  
there are over a hundred access points all over that section of town  
running wide open, but using SSH to validate.
