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.


Clamav like all Linux antivirus apps is primarily directed against Windows viruses. You only need it if you are running a Linux mailserver or fileserver for Windows clients.
