Linux vs. Windows Viruses

Very good article indeed!

Now I know that it is a BAD IDEA to run as Admin in Windows, but there is so much that will not run correctly on a less privilieged user, that it is the path of least resistance, so going along with the "culture of insecurity" that pervades Windows.

Linux users have had it drummed into them time and time again that you DO NOT run as an admin user unless performing admin tasks, and programs that need higher privilages can be individually run with higher privilages.

Mind you, the Lindows case is just one example, other users migrating from windows may well bring the same culture of insecurity with them to any distribution of Linux, rather than adapt to the good practice.
