I recently made the switch to Linux (Mandrake 10.1) and really like it. I've read that with Linux you don't need an antivirus because of the structure of the OS. Just to be on the safe-side I thought I'd ask if this is correct or not what with the expertise available here. At present I'm not running an antivirus. I'm also behind a Westell 6100 modem/router (yes, Verizon's DSL $14.95 a month deal with a one year contract...I'm in heaven compared to my old dialup ). Any replies will be appreciated. Thanks, and have a good day.
