"Linux is Less virus infected

This is because of the fundamental design of the Linux operating system compared to linux less virus and advantageswindows.Linux was designed from the start to be used by multiple concurrent users while windows has evolved from a single user model. Much of the single design model is still inherent in the most modern version of windows

If a virus infects a windows machine it immediately has access to very important system files which allows it to access every other user on the machine and use that users information to propagate itself. If the equivalent virus infects a Linux machine the area of the virus's effect is limited to that user. Due to the nature of Linux operating system design the other users are not effected"

The story is too old to be commented.
