Well, since I use MSIE only when I have no option (which is seldom),
never check my mail from a Windows client, don't download Warez or
pretty much anything from untrustworthy sites... I'm not too concerned.
And the WinXP firewalling is actually pretty decent, so that helps, too.

I have Cygwin installed on my Windows side, and I can't tell you how
many times I wished I could pull up a C source file or something I was
working on in Linux, without having to reboot: or possibly there was a
reason why I really needed to be in Windows for the time being, too.
(I do need Windows to check MSIE compliance of the group website I'm
developing, sad as that is).
