Anyway, if they run linux, why do they need AV for?
Well, some folks think that Linux *has* a virus problem (because there
have been _some_ viruses/worms/trojans for it). Others feel that it
*will have* a problem, once it takes more of the the desktop market
from MS. Whether they are right or not is not so much the
point...making them happy is, and it's easier to give them AV software
than to debate the point with them.
Especially since, if I tell them they are safe and talk them out of
getting software and then they DO happen to get hit (unlikely, but
possible), I would be mortified.
