Granted, if the Windows users were a bit more computer literate they'd avoid malware on their machines. The sheer number though doesn't change the value of the information available, most users' computers are full of junk that's not even worth the effort to code malware for unless you just want to play script kiddy, that was my point on that matter. ;)
Exactly but Trojans... well,
they can snag about anyone. Here is where deception works and the frailty of the human psyche to wish. Wisdom is a help , but we are all vulnerable at some level. There is no defenses against every threat, if there were extinction would be an imminent threat.

That's right Ubuntu Linux is so difficult because you have to baby it by not having to buy Virus scanners and not having to put up with a buggy OS or having to put with adware and malware not invading my machine.
It's frustrating having to content with free software which works (out of the box).
It drives me nuts every time I plug in a new USB device and not having to waste time installing it. I mean it.s terrible having to wait 10-15 seconds for the system to recognise a new device so I can talk to it.
There is no perfect system, though some may seem that way at times. I am however glad something is working great for you, that in itself is a testament of successful program writers, either with the OS or program writers, who have for you at least ...come to a level .

That deserves praise.

Don't give me that crap that nothing can be believable until it's proven.
Evidence.

Evidence.

Black holes. Dark matter. Love. Evolution.

TONS of evidence.

He uses "proven" instead of evidence.

He does it intentionally in order to maintain his delusion.

Pay particular attention to the word IS....as in "Confirm the particle IS a Higgs boson.

However, while the physicists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) confirm the particle is a Higgs boson, it doesnÂ’t appear to have all of the properties the theoretical Higgs boson is said to have.

God has much evidence, just not much you would call qualifying , or compelling. Though it hasn't been scientifically ruled out either.

He doesn't believe in science. He's said on a number of occasions that science is lame. Yet he graciously accepts science when it's convenient. things like clean water, abundant food, his life being extended as well as his loved ones, sanitary conditions of the highest order. He will reject anything science has to say in order to preserve his delusional beliefs. No matter how many times the evidence has been presented to him, he will flatly rejects it. He'll proclaim that the evidence is not to be trusted, he'll twist and turn every which way in order to avoid the truth. Truth is NOT important to him, only his beliefs are. Although pitiful, I do enjoy watching what religious beliefs can do to the mind. Party of why I come on this site is to watch the effects religious beliefs has on what otherwise would be a normally intelligent mind. Very sad, but also interesting!!!!

Sure.
He demands absolutes from science - which is (properly) very reluctant to make 'em.

For me, that's an understatement.

Beneath contempt is a bit closer.

Scum.

If I were king of the world, I'd compel Limbaugh to turn in his membership card to the human race.

I think you are jealous. More people believe him than you.

He is probably smarter, too.

You do know he has a lot of family that are lawyers? His father was one.

"His family has many lawyers, including his grandfather, father and brother David. His uncle, Stephen N. Limbaugh, Sr. is a federal judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri. His cousin, Stephen N. Limbaugh, Jr., is currently a judge in the same court, appointed by George W. Bush. Rush Limbaugh, Sr., Limbaugh's grandfather was a Missouri prosecutor, judge, special commissioner, member of the Missouri House of Representatives from 1930 until 1932, and longtime president of the Missouri Historical Society.[6] The Federal Courthouse in Cape Girardeau is named for Limbaugh's grandfather, Rush Limbaugh, Sr.."

I didn't say Limbaugh wasn't smart.

Nor did I say that he doesn't have a lot of family members who are lawyers.

All I said is that he is, in my view, scum.

Sorry I have been down to one post a day here, but my lawyerly pursuits have superseded my ability to join you more often. I have had some cases that require much time, energy and creativity.
