Anti Virus Company Recommends You Don't Use Windows

It used to be the joke was “Friends don’t let friends do Windows” – well now it’s a case of many a true word spoken in jest.

The UK anti-virus company Sophos is reportedly recommending that you don’t use Windows any more due to its increasing vulnerability to attack.

Security threats to PCs with Microsoft Windows have increased so much that computer users should consider using a Mac, says a leading security firm.

As someone who is constantly having to fight spam because of Windows PC’s that have become infected by viruses, trojans and other malware I second the call – please think twice before buying a Windows PC!

  1. It would probably help their case if they had scanner versions for non-Windows operating systems which came in smaller chunks.

    At the moment, their smallest multi-user scanner for Linux caters for 100 users, which is a tad expensive for a little office with four users. With such steep starting-prices, systems like ClamAV are more than good enough to do the job.

  2. I’m not sure that is directly relevant to their argument, their point is (to my reading) that you’d be safer off in the first place (even without an AV system) using a Mac.
