Got to agree with you Stil. It is sheer hubris and/or idiocy to claim
that a given computer system is immune to virus infection. Such a claim
actually discredits the system and its creators.

Heh ... many programmers do not realise that even the simple Hello World
program written in C has a bug (or two) in it.
