I will comment on the statement Linux does not get viruses...

ANY operating system can be attacked by hackers.. Normally they go after windows cause.. Well.. Think of a terrorist with a suicide vest (Hackers are a lot like them) do you walk into the Hodunk But Station at noon when the sign on the door says "Out to lunch" and blow the place up.. Or Grand Central Station at rush hour when it's packed wall to wall?

The first is Linux, and IOS, the second Windows.

Of course when Apple started bragging how their OS was virus proof.. Guess what the hackers did "Ah A Challenge" and trust me.. IOs is NOT hacker proof... The difference is the ones that challenged it were the nasty ones.. Seriously messed up were the victimized computers.

SO DO NOT BRAG about how your OS is virus proof..

Though I do admit there are a cuouple of Linux Distros that would be very hard to infect (Based as they run off read only memory)
Home is where I park it!
