Be thankful for small victories.  Currently the front page of the BBC
news website has a story about a Windows worm called Downadup, and for
once it clearly shows that it only affects Windows, it's not a
"computer virus" or "PC worm".  It even has a Windows logo there,
right on the front page.  That's the sort of advertising money can't
buy ...

  Windows worm numbers 'skyrocket' A virulent Windows virus is racking
  up millions of victims, tripling in size in just four days, computer
  security firms report.

(They still confuse worm and virus, but it's a start)
