Exactly. And what's with that "we have an ironclad history" when
referring to Unix? Doesn't anyone remember Robert Morris'
"Internet Worm" (the original, -real- worm; not this goofy
MS thing going around) that exploited a bug in sendmail and
brought the Unix research community to their knees back in the
mid-80's? I guess he did make up for it near the end by stating
we've had no problems "in recent years."
I'm with you though, I hope no one takes this as a challenge.
I have enough problems configuring sound on my box, I don't want
to have to worry with viruses, too. heh.
"You've got to understand their market has always been the Windows
space, where you're actually doing people a favor by charging them
money for things, because that's the only way to keep from confusing
them. Linux users are smarter than this." -Larry Wall, creator of Perl
