PCLOS has been a revelation
as far as running a dozen programs to keep out nasties on a Windows box. That's my favourite feature, more time to actually partake in my interests of the Web. At least 60% more time.
Let us not forget, it is Windows that gets Viruses
, not Linux. Linux needs no extras, just a knowledge of how to use it correctly, you'd really have to try, to leave yourself in a vulnerable situation, although it's possible.
You can run a Virus free Windows System, it's a matter of how much time you have to invest in a lot of study, at the right places, from the right people. I was late to Computing, (2000) was also lucky to have studied Elec/Comp Engineering when I had plenty of time on my hands, plus willing to devote at least 9 hours a day to study. I've never had a Virus, in over a decade of Windows use. I've seen plenty though.
The most careful Windows user can inadvertently just 'Mouse Over' an infected script on a Website page and simply pickup a Virus. That is why I don't have any time for Windows, and why most people shouldn't support M$. M$ create Vulnerabilities, ...
I could secure an M$ System from such an event happening with 'Third Party Software'
, but isn't that a ridiculous situation ?
Initially I certainly felt I was, 'Surfing in the Nude'
when I crossed to using Linux, however that isn't the case when you get into the nuts and bolts of it's construction.pe1800
, as I've said before, "Microsoft is a huge Business, Linux is an Academic Endeavour."
More time to browse the Web securely is the choice of the wise.
