lol, Linux does get viruses every now and then(though rarely.) I thought this was interesting. Out of 34 virus,trojans, etc, in the last two months, Windows had all of them except one that Linux had, Backdoor.Maxload a low level trojan, based on this website http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/vinfodb.html
From what I understand there are sometimes vulnerabilities, etc, in linux or, for example, FireFox. The problem in firefox was fixed as well as the kernel. It doesn't take months or years to fix like Microsoft takes, the Linux community actually cares about these things.
Linux is great, Much better then Windows. But I am online 24/7(DSL) without shutting down. I install many things just for the fun of it and for the practice and then uninstall them. From my understanding sometimes viruses do get in. Just not much and not even close to what MSWindows gets, I don't think any os can get as much as them.
