I think you missed my point. I'm not trying to brag, because even linux/BSD/whatever are vulnerable to viruses, even if they just affect user data (which is arguably worse than just the OS). My point is, software needs to be built to minimize the damages that viruses and friends can cause, either by stopping programs from modifying data that the user hasn't given them access to or by securing software using higher level languages.
