Yes, you read that right. You can download AVG Anti-Virus for Linux. Free. That’s all well and good, but — what would be the purpose of it? There aren’t any viruses for linux (well, very few at least)!
I suppose it might prevent you from spreading viruses through email if you’d downloaded a dodgy attachment, or perhaps check files which you downloaded, but in general I wouldn’t have thought it was particularly necessary.
Well, I might download it and try it out… see what we come up with 🙂 I’ll report back.
(Side Note: I mentioned a couple of days ago the lecture broadcast by the Royal Society on creationism / evolution. The Register wrote a short report on it today 🙂 )
