Re: [vox-tech] Spyware For Linux?

It's "anti-spyware" program, not spyware program.  Spyware programs slow
down your computer.

Linux doesn't have spyware.  So no, you don't need anti-spyware software.

Even Windows doesn't need one if you know what you're doing.  My Windows
system as well as my parents' run perfectly fine without any typical
slowdown you see on a spywared systems.  Stop clicking on random things on
the web especially stupid ads and downloading illegal software and free
software you've never heard of and using bad e-mail readers!
