Ah, the old Virus debate! I must admit that I can't remember the last time I had a virus on a Windows machine either, but yes I do run free AV solutions.

Unfortunatly these days most viruses etc are spread through phishing attempts and social engineering designed to get users to click on something they shouldn't, and your Mac won't offer you any more protection from doing something silly yourself.
