Just getting my Linux System going just curious what antivirus you all recommend for Linux. I am running Fedora 11. Would rather use one that is not a resource hog. Thanks

The rule-of-thumb for linux is - that you don't *need* a anti-virus program !.

that said, if you send / receive stuff via Email from anyone in M$ land, then do them a favor, & run clam av ( from synaptic) or avg for linux or some such av software.
