That's too bad. How about Linux? I've received an offer from someone to build me a zoomin' linux box suitable to video/film editing. Might try it. I'm moving toward a microsoft-free diet by using all open source and free high quality programs like Avast, Firefox, Thunderbird, Open Office, linux, mac, etc. A bit off topic but I'll take any chance I can to preach!  ::)

Ciao!

How about Linux?

I'm on Linux now  8)
avast! protects Linux environments... Without a GUI for now and without an on-access scanner...  :(

mimacdonald, There are no Viruses for OS X yet. But You can still spread windows viruses to other Windows users. If you have a .Mac Subscription you can download virex for free if you have Mac OS X Jaguar or Panther. Virex is not Tiger Compatible yet.

In general there is no need for Antivirus Software if you use a Mac ;)

And dont forget all new Macs come with iLife 05 that includes the iMovie HD Video Editing Software
