Malware is not amusing but the study of it can be very informative. Do you remember the trolls telling us that 95% of the world used that other OS and GNU/Linux has no chance? Look at this.
That is a map of Conficker infections. It tells us where that other OS is. Notice where it is not: Brazil and Russia and China. Well there is a fair amount in China but with a 1000 million people and as many surfers as the USA (which should be embarrassed to use that other OS as much as it does). India is hard to know. They also have a 1000 million people and have a moderate level of infection.
My conclusion is that it is in everyone’s best interest to dump that other OS ASAP. I think it is wonderful for M$ to provide us a means of tracking that other OS so we can count GNU/Linux. Good. This also dispels the stories that GNU/Linux is being removed widely… HAHAHAHA
