Nowadays, it is downright impossible to keep a Windows XP-machine running online without a firewall and antivirus software.
Mmmm, then I must have been doing something weird here: I have been running several Windows computers here since 1995, without firewealls, without AV, and I never had a single problem. But then again, it's in fashion to say stuff like the line from the author above. I never had a single virus infection on my computers running Windows, my parents', my friends', my relatives' and so on.
While this article wasn't too bad, the pro-Linux attitude was sickening. Please, when writing articles, please, try to be objective!
