Re: [DMCForum] AOL...



Actually, I'll do you one better: Linux/UNIX.

Most virus/trojan/exploit authors I know use some variant of UNIX on
their personal computers.  By virtue of the fact that I know some of
these people (and some are very clever), I also use Linux almost
exclusively at home and work.  Plus it fits my usage profile better.

Jon Heese
