Desktop Linux distributions have surged in popularity on netbooks and low-cost office terminals. Linux has won for its fast startup time, low systems requirements and cost efficiency relative to popular platforms like Windows and Mac OS X.
Whether you use your Linux desktop to surf the Web or work on shared office documents, it is vulnerable to direct attacks by malware or may be targeted as a carrier for cross-platform viruses and other threats designed to target Windows and Macs.
