Re: "What happened to the "Linux is malware-free" claim?"
Ooh - the Linux zealot fanbois didn't like that question!
Are you desperate for downvotes?!?
Mind you, I'm as great a fan of Linux zealots, especially distro zealots as I am of Windows zealots. Or Apple zealots. I've used them all and I have gripes about them all.
As for the claim, anyone with any experience in operating systems in general can tell you how valid it is.
