"FYI I haven't used a anti-virus on any of my computers or use windows updates in over 6 years. I have never had a virus or anything of the sort since I stopped used anti-viruses."

We are talking about users !!!
They don't create their own Linux Boot CDs nor are they all specialist.
I also create Linux Boot CDs. That leads me not to think, the whole internet users have the knowledge to avoid infection or hijacking of their computer.
If simple clicks on a specially prepared web site can infect a computer system, what do you think does an ordinary user know about such things?
Btw: What makes you think, that linux is a guest system?
