The problem with this thinking is no one mentioned any virus would need to be given permissions to be installed and then given permissions to execute. That is why viruses have no success on *nix. Of course, if a user does all that, it has nothing to do with *nix. And the popularity of the OS doesn't either. In fact, there has been no successful virus in the wild since 2001.
