Hopefully the design of the Linux system will make it harder for malware authors to get their wares to work. I think the ubiquity of Windows has given people the mistaken impression that all platforms are equally susceptible. Fortunately, that's not true.

I guess we will revisit that once Linux gains enough market share to either prove or disprove this theory. My vote is disprove.
