RE: virus detection
In dutch we call this MUGGENZIFTEN wich translates as Sifting mosquito's.
But it is nice to know though ;-)
Point was that there was one guy asking can i be infected with a virus on my
Linux/i386 box, while another one replied he couldn't because "for linux
there is no such thing", probably works for the government.
As a matter of fact the number of viruses (mostly scripts) for unix/linux is
growing, fortunatly much slower then for MS-W.

Well, I'd love to see you try to infect, say, an HP9845 with a virus.
The entire OS is contained in ROM. (It isn't unique in that respect.)
