Comment Re:2012 the year of the Linux desktop (Score 1) 299

The Linux users who are hackers will likely see the attention of (more) evil coders as a challenge. And of course Linux isn't completely immune, there is always the Naive-User exploit.

(Mandatory Access Control software/patchset, not running as root 24/7, keeping your system up-to-date, etc)
