I was using Knoppix and ClamAV to remove a virus for a friend when the

What wasted energy--over an OS I boot into maybe
7% of the time. They screw up half the time.
By having my wife/kids run Windows from "named" unpriv accounts,
using Tbird/Firefox/ABP/Flashblock and not logging into social media
sites, we've kept their system virus-free for 5 years.
