Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Recently we've seen the releases of both Ubuntu 8.04 'Hardy Heron' as well as Fedora 9 'Sulphur', to mostly positive reviews. PCWorld Australia decided to pitch these two popular Linux distributions against one another.

You usually don't need an antivirus app for Linux (or for OSX for that matter, just don't run Safari). If you are adamant about getting one then there are a couple in the repository. The best one imo is clamav because they update regularly, the downside is the awful UI. The easiest way to install it since you don't seem to be all too familiar with Ubuntu is to open add/remove programs and do a search for virus scanner. Check the box on the left and it should be good to go. Note it will slow down you startup a bit (not by much though) but its added a new startup process so you may notice your startup taking a bit more than usual.
