I don't use any security software really so no issue here. The only thing that annoys me is installing the ten bazillion pieces of software I use for doing stuff. In Linux, the package manager makes it easy to batch install the lot or even customise the installation. In Windows a first-time install can be highly boring.

No experience with OSX so couldn't comment!

One day a super-OS will break through with the looks of OSX, the software library and ease of use of Windows and the security and openness of Linux/BSD

And with no CD, i was not going to fork out another $100 for the software.
Shit software exists for all platforms, not just Windows.

Get yourself a NAT router with some packet inspection, AVG free anti-virus and turn on the XP firewall if you're really paranoid. Oh, and have a coke and a smile
