Since Fedora is supposed to be a general purpose OS, are there any
plans to add any type of AV software?

I know that virii are not big problems in the linux world, but its
better to be prepared (after if linux gets the penetration, attempts
will be made...)

There is a list of Linux A/V (GPL and commercial) on this site:

However all of the GPL A/V are console based, but one should be chosen
as a default install IMO.

(which one is probably a packaging-list discussion, however the wider
discussion on antivirus software also needs to be addressed, and this
IMO is the place.)
