I find that impossible to believe. I have no doubt that trojan software will install and run itself regardless. I suspect this is a) a misquote or b) a mis-direction.
Nadia - I looked into upgrading Maya to Nadia and found several comments along the lines of "why bother?". There are probably a few improvements but Maya is LTS (long term) and Nadia isn't, so theoretically Maya is still a better option. My remaining Ubuntu 10.04 is due to become Mint Maya any day now, as soon as I've finished assessing the changes (eg this ubuntu machine handles printers and scanners for the network - I would need to reinstall that, which takes time).
As to windows anything - I need to run a very few programs under wine (mostly genealogy and Access 2000) and my wife still needs windows 2000 for a couple of things. Otherwise, it's all linux (currently Mint) and heading even more in that direction.
