Re: Windows 7 = Windows Vista Sp2?
Nice wall of text there. I'm not slamming linux in any way, I'm just slamming the notion that an antivirus system will incur a noticeable and (as zoomy suggested) heavy CPU overhead to your Windows system. This is simply not true.
Remember we're talking about CPU overhead, not RAM overhead.
Now please step away from your machine for if you dare to click on the reply button you will see a huuuuge CPU spike of 100% CPU usage for 1 milisecond. I'm not sure your big admin ego and your fragile machine can handle this... Just kidding, but you may see the point.
Also, antivirus system sweeps suck and therefore you can turn them off.
