    I read the comments.

    Some of them are ok, others are pure nonsense... as always, I guess.

    But I always love the: "If Linux becomes popular as Windows, it will come under onslaught of malware" ... comparison to 'biological' virii

    First, virii are not living things hence no biology.

    Second, when and not if Linux becomes the most popular OS, there will be no worries - except for those who invested too much in MS shares.

    Some people are simply hung up on the malware thing too much. They simply do not understand how things work. Sad really. Like saying if there were more elephants they would turn carnivorous.
