Use *nix.

We have NO windows machines in our company. Only Linux and Mac. Never had any problem with viruses whatsoever.

Don't be a dumb-dumb.

Use *nix.

@drq i am using *nix. but the security folks forced _everybody_ to install an anti-virus.

i actually had to change distros because musl libc didn't run the linux version of the anti-virus they wanted.

@drq ah, yeah, the workplace absolutely _sucks_ when it comes to security -- missing out on some of the easiest things to do while also being overly paranoid in others.
