Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "Mandriva Linux has a history of inconsistency; one release will be superb, and the next one will be so bug-ridden and feature-weak that it's unusable. The only commonality among all releases are the excellent system configuration tools, which have continued to evolve over the years to match an increasing level of complexity in the desktop software stack. True to form, Mandriva 2008.0 is an excellent release, following the terrible 2007.1, and the just as excellent 2007.0. Some of the important things that were dropped from the previous release (Cedega, LinDVD) are back, and some of the problems (huge K menu button, cluttered menus) have been mitigated."

read the special issue n 32 of "GLMF" about viruses in Unixes :

The threat is real. They show several examples.

The best protection ?

Diversity.
The more different systems are spread around, the more difficult it is to write an efficient virus.

My conclusion is : Use Mandriva Linux ! (or Debian, suse, slackware, LFS, Gentoo etc... )
