...and that's what people were saying 10 years ago too. Never seen a Linux 
virus, never heard of one except in rumors. Spending cash to protect against 
a threat that has a very small chance of happening is dumb, especially if the 
hypothetical damage is small, like for viruses. Leave viruses to your Windows 
colleagues, and walk proudly without a pager. ;)
