I learned a new BC trick today that I want to share: I notice  that some people will make reference to a post  and then give a link to the thread and say what post they are referring to. A better way to do that is to click on the post number in the thread and you will be given a direct link to place that post at the top of the browser window.

A/V Software? I don't need A/V software. I've run Linux since '98 w/o A/V software and have never had a virus. I never even had a firewall until '01 when I began to get routers with firewalls pre installed. With Linux if a vulnerability is detected a fix is quickly found and then upon your next update the vulnerability is patched.  If you must worry about viruses  on a Linux system only worry about them in the sense that you can infect a windows user. I recommend Linux Mint or, if you need a lighter weight operating system that fits on a cd, MX14 or AntiX.
