    Should I use a viruskiller???


    My fellow Linuxians,

    Coming from a Windows enviroment,
    I'm used to using a viruskiller.

    From what I read everywhere, in a Linux enviroment it's not required. Mind you, I'm not using any software running on Windows (through Wine for example)...

    Should I use a viruskiller anyway (for example because all my friends still use Windows) ??? And of course, what's the best one (commercial or free/open-source) ????

    Any thoughts welcome!

    1. I have never used one in my entire GNU/Linux "career".. I never had the need for it, and I doubt you have it too unless you run a mail/fileserver.. But you could check out somethig here:
