Re: No great loss.

I wish it was snake oil. I've been nailed before at work because a coworker wouldn't run AV, and walked a virus into the company. And still he couldn't get it into his head that he should have AV running on his machine.

I have Windows on just one computer now, and I don't use it for anything critical. Everything else is Linux or OpenBSD, and that's fine by me.
