Windows Last week, security vendor Sophos published a blog post in which it said that Windows 7 was vulnerable to 8 our of 10 of the most common viruses. Microsoft has responded to these test results, which are a classic case of "scare 'm and they'll fall in line".

Linux is only 01 percent of the desktop market.


I am not convinced that this is a true reflection of Linux usage. Many people use both windows and linux on a day to day basis, but would probably be considered windows users.

If the desktop share was very simmilar, I think you might be using an AV permanently.


While i have no doubt in my mind that AS linux increases its market share viruses will crop up, it is just not a simple & easy to create a virus to infect Linux as it is to create only that will infect windows.
