Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Recently we've seen the releases of both Ubuntu 8.04 'Hardy Heron' as well as Fedora 9 'Sulphur', to mostly positive reviews. PCWorld Australia decided to pitch these two popular Linux distributions against one another.

I don't think you need antivirus, I've certainly never used it on any Linux I've run.

I would agree with you, unless he is running WINE for known target applications (Office macro's, etc). Then maybe an anti-virus just in case. Not for his own infection, but so he can't pass on anything to a friend.

I don't have friends (aside from you guys) so I guess I won't bother. I'd rather spend the time backing up my data for the next 'clean install' I'll be performing in future.

Yup, I've been bitten hard by the Linux bug.
