Intel Chalk this one up on the 'uh, what?'-list of acquisitions. Intel announced today that it has acquired Mcafee, the security and antivirus company we all know and love. The press release is a bit vague on why, exactly, Intel made this rather odd acquisition.

Would be better if people were start using linux instead of paying for companies like mcafee for their crapware.

Linux is not immune to malware, especially if you allow and run random programs downloaded from the internet on your system. A stupid Windows user can be a "just as stupid" Linux user.
