Or, getting back to viruses, he might want to read a newspaper.  It seems to 
me that everytime I read about some dangerous virus outbreak in the newspaper 
I'm told that Linux and Mac users are safe.  And it turns out that with some 
of these viruses nowadays even we Windows98 users are safe.  (He he he, I 
don't need no XP.  My accountant actually used the virus issue as an argument 
for not upgrading from 98 to XP.)

A few weeks ago I met a guy who told me he switched from Windows to Linux 
because he was simply tired of getting viruses all the time.  That was the 
first time I'd met anyone who'd made the switch for that reason.
