Why should Mac users
suffer and pay for Windows users'
consciously self-inflicted problems? Have Windows users ever done anything to make Mac users' life any easier? Quite the contrary, in the past 26 years! So Macs carrying Windows viruses are a Windows problem caused by Windows users. Ergo: let them
solve it! I have no problems with it.
Gee, and we wonder why Windows users think Mac "fanboys" are arrogant. I'll be honest (and this comparison is a real stretch,) but that kind of attitude is like a guy not wanting to use protection because he can't get pregnant.
Granted, Windows users should be taking responsibility for their system being protected. However, since it's a small, free AV program. Are you that hard up for memory, CPU cycles and hard drive space?
Besides, perhaps you misunderstood me: I wasn't posting telling people they need to use it, just that there is a reason to.
