http://www.linuxforums.org – Hi New to the forum and linux. No computer expert, but fed up with Windows and don't like the Apple 'hype'. Was thinking trying Ubuntu for my laptop (as a start) but couldn't find whether it is save to use Ubuntu regarding internet safity and worms, trojans etc. Didn't find much about this on the site/web. Since linux is on the way up, threats are lurking about..? Someone here who can share his light on this subject? Thanx & good new year from Norway. (HowTos)
