Better still, use something that defends you from using 'rcp' or '.exe' files - GNU/Linux! :thumbsup:

Nah, it's ok - Until 100% perfect compatibility with the software I use! (and ZERO interest in Emulating/Wine/VM etc) i'll stick with what works.... :)

Linux can still get virus' too....

You took your time on this one swarf... and demonstrated your lack of knowledge, a little bit more.

 

Saying that, were you busy trying to get your hardware running on Linux? :thumbsup:

I don't use wine for good reason either (

As for viruses, the term is incorrect, malware or rather malicious script is what can affect GNU/Linux - even GNU/Linux community make this mistake. Cup of Linux reported on such "Virus" recently and it was pointed out that the leaky code had been patched before it had been reported on. I read an article some time ago that had studied which OS base had the quickest fix and it was proven that patches were produced more quickly for GNU/Linux than Ms Windows. :wink:

You have to remember, that around 100k people are working on GNU/Linux,  to some extent... Windows on the other hand has around 1000 developers, at most!

Then there's how many of those GNU/Linux people have been doing it for decades, vs how many at MS are relatively new in comparison!
