Windows "Way back in November 2006, when Windows Vista went from beta to RTM, Microsoft's Jim Allchin suggested that users might not need an antivirus program, thanks to the new OS's stronger security features. While the statement was subsequently clarified until it lost all its meaning, the question remains: Do Vista users really need an antivirus program running in the background at all times?"

Hi! Welcome to osnews.

The difference between Joe user and the the "PC know-it-all" Is that there are many MANY people who refuse to learn, or do not wish to learn, and thus stay in their ignorant little blissfull world, going to all the porn sites on ie, and opening up all the attachments from their spam inbox.

The "PC know-it-all" isn't whom you are thinking of. You are thinking of the people who format more than once a year. A true "PC know-it-all" usually doesn't format their systems, usually controls large corporate networks, and usually isn't biased towards any operating system, and can use the big 3 equally as well.

By your logic, Le mons drivers should never be able to complain about people who are bad drivers, because they all started as average drivers.
