it will be interesting to see how the virus evolves after the release of Vista. Apple and Linux have managed to remain virtually Virus free, lets see if after a complete re-write, if MS can get it right this time too.
They promiss better security, but this is not the first time that MS has gone back on a promiss(http://www.betanews.com/article/Microsoft_Axes_WinFS_Cancels_Beta_2...)
Only time will tell. Luckly i wont be having any virus problems, or have i had to deal with a Virus for years now. Life is so much simpler without MS
