Well, sort of running on with that theme. It has been established
that, at present, there are no virii to worry about with Linux. I
disagree. The virii that are out there will not affect a Linux box as
such but it will make the whole internet experience a damn lot slower.
Every virus or more worm that is sent from a PC - Windows box - takes
up bandwidth on the web as a whole. This slows down traffic and thus
does indeed have an effect on a Linux PC.
