I was using Knoppix and ClamAV to remove a virus for a friend when the
futility of it all hit me.  The free anti-virus hopscotch game that windows
users play to feel safe.


                          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.
