    Thread moved to Computers & IT, as that sub-forum seems the most appropriate.

    Unfortunately, I think you're 100% right. Its appalling that so many people are so unwilling to learn about something that they depend so heavily on (computers). The future, however, looks bright I think.

    You're quite right about there being lots of Linux servers - I should have clarified that I was talking about the desktop.

    It would and there are many attacks on servers - particularly web servers. The UK government recently announced a plan to remove some 50% of their web servers because so many have been compromised. Seems many have been put up and then essentially left without maintenance or proper security checks.

    Generally speaking though, servers are a tougher target because they're (usually) managed by (presumably) savvy tech teams who aren't going to open a doc from some dodgy e-mail or click on a link to some dodgy website. They also tend to be behind decent firewalls, have properly patched O/Ss and up-to-date AV.

    That's true, but sadly it doesn't guarantee security - think of the recent issues around Heartbleed.
