I did get a Virus App for the Mac with one of the MacHeist bundles a while ago but never installed it. I have to say that I do think about it sometimes but never got down to the point where I felt like I need to do something more than just being a "suspicious" user when clicking on links and stuff.

My VM Windows on my Mac do all have Virus software installed. But there I started to go over with the "free" solution from MS.

By the way, I like the new style of the FMEO website.
