Linux "Not that long ago, a significant portion of desktop GNU/Linux enthusiasts were actively advocating GNU/Linux among Windows users. I even remember doing it myself at one point, though now I really don't care what you use on your computer as long as I don't have to use it too. I thought that sentiment was isolated to me, but lately I've seen an abrupt decline in GNU/Linux evangelism on online forums. Here are some possible reasons for this change in community thinking and behavior."

Still can`t beleive virii isn`t a word, if google can make it into the dictionary why can`t that !?

Virii is the plural form of the word "virus". Dictionaries don't contain plural forms of words. That's why you can't find it in there.

Howdy

Hmm last time I googled for that it came up that it indeed was not correct the plural was viruses.
It was also pointed out to me by a few readers of this site (who may or may not still be active).
It`s funny how things never really seem to be black and white, they sort of strobe with time.
Ahhh to be young again *sigh*
