True that. Without windows there would be no jobs for Anti virus peeps. 
And let's face it, without Windows, Linux would be a tad bit boring, no?  ;)

Hi Batsirai and All Ubuntu folks!

The fact that Widows have an Antivirus Developers' backing sucks.
Because creating and distributing virus is a business on its own, Open
Source Systems is fought by these guys.

It is actually an advantage to Antivirus developers that there exist Bill
Gates and his Microsoft, which makes me think that the guys who are
responsible for virus creation are those Antivirus Developers who might be
Microsoft subsiduries in business.

But with the launch of Google OS as a freemium, the Windows monoloply is
going to be diluted.
