When I used to run Windows on my homw pc I had it setup so that I received no virii or malware.
I did this without the aid of an antivirus program.
But I have worked with several clients computers that took hours for me to clean all of the malware off of them.
Educating people to use the tools the tools out there that can keep there Windows clean can be a difficult job.How to know if you are a geek.
when you respond to "get a life!" with "what's the URL?"

Well, I was always happy with Windows' NT kernel for my home use. As soon as I could I got NT 4.0 and then later 2000. But when they began to make the move to XP that did not interest me - too resource hungry, and too much of what I don't need. The OS is garbage from my perspective.
Basically all I want is something that is light, stable and robust for my home use. That was the NT-based Wins, and now those days are over. I am very happy with (SuSE) Linux now, and FreeBSD is pretty good as well.

Where do that data come from?
Is it verifiable?
Is the source trusted?
There's lots of FUD out there - don't believe everything you read or see.

well... i chose to use linux almost 2 years ago becaus ei heard it dossnt crash, i had some comics that the charicters in the comics used linux, the name 'Linux' sounded cool to me. the name 'Red Hat' sounded even cooler. and that little red hat guy looked cool. i really had no accuall reason to try it out, and when i did i was like "wtf? why is this so great?" but i had no idea of the endless possibabilities that come with the OS. now i use it all the time and am verry happy i switched from windows. Linux is where its at and im glad im there too (oh yea... my reasonings for using it are no longer becaus eit sounds and/or looks cool )I can imagine a perfect world, a world without hate, a world without war. Then I can imagine us attacking that world because they\'d never expect it.
