Macs are not really affected by virus outbreaks like windows machines are.
You are unlikely to ever get a mac virus even if you dont use AV software.

US-Cert's 2005 lists of new vulnerabilities lists (this is a rough count) 25-30 for Macs, and this would presumably not include other applications on your computer. Now matter how "safe" any operating system, it is open to attack.
Regards,
John

You are only paranoid if you are never attacked. If you are then you are considered prudent. What does it hurt?
