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".

Satan, you YET don't have to use an AV because Linux is only 01 percent of the desktop market. There is no point in f***ing just one percent of the desktop market when you can target around 90 percent. If the desktop share was very simmilar, I think you might be using an AV permanently.


Actually, Linux is far more prevalent than 1%, even if we look only at the desktop market.

Linux reportedly has 32% of the netbook market, for example:
