    that will vary with individual users. Some swear by clamav,some AVG,some with any of the others. It's all down to personal preferences.

    You could start a new thread, and make it a poll with all of the known Unix virus scanners as choices. That would give you a visual that would make it easy to find out which is the most popular among SuSE users. To poll people who use many different operating systems, and not just SuSE, you may start a poll thread at Open Source and Linux Forums.

    It might be useful if you run a mail server from your computer, and you want to screen attachments that might get sent from your users to other windows users' computers. For personal desktops though, it's probably not necessary. Keeping your applications up to date is more important.

    Some people run their servers headless, some with a monitor but no window manager, and some with the full desktop. At my friend's company, they have their own mail server that's run under Gentoo with a fluxbox window manager.

    Let them infect each other. Why should we have to run a soft to compensate
    for their defects?
