The WizardfromOz has posted a topic, now in 'General Security' reference above, which may be of some interest to those considering Linux as an alternative to Windows or as well as Windows.


Essentially, his argument is that by using Linux for backing up data you can avoid - or at least minimise - the risks of falling victim to infections of the Cryptoware variety.


This post is entirely to draw attention to this topic and any and all discussion please in the General Security section. This topic is now locked.
