Though linux is more secure than most Windows systems, I would STRONGLY
ADVISE, that you do not take the attitude that "it can't happen". IMNSHO,
besides a firewall, using at least one antivirus application is highly advisable,
even if you *never* connect to Windows clients.

No computer (for that matter, *nothing* made by man) is 100% foo-proof,
or invincible to attack. I would prefer to err on the side of caution, rather than
blithely assume that you will never get attacked. Unless you're one of those
people who believe in getting fire insurance *after* a major fire!
