Windows Last week, security vendor Sophos published a blog post in which it said that Windows 7 was vulnerable to 8 our of 10 of the most common viruses. Microsoft has responded to these test results, which are a classic case of "scare 'm and they'll fall in line".

The windows guy said:

Chester's final conclusion? "You still need to run anti-virus on Windows 7." Well, we agree: users of any computer, on any platform, should run anti-virus software, including those running Windows 7.
(my bold)

That's simply not true. I've been using Linux exclusively both at work and at home (at least 10 hours a day in total). I've never installed an antivirus and I haven't had any virus at all.
Edit: I forgot to mention I've been using Linux for five years now (and counting).
