infect. the mail goal of viruses. the majority  of viruses aimed at
stealing computer user's personal information. if Linux becomes popular
enough, i think that there will be a lot of viruses spread in the Linux

thanks for your suggestions, i translate the openoffice files into PDF
and sent them to Chinese. but now there is a problem, I need to edit the
files written in Chinese and saved in MS Word2003 format. when i use
openoffice open the files . the files can not be  displayed correctly. i
have to re-edit the files in openoffice and then start my work.
