    I mean on ANY platform, I see trojans for every platform now-a-days, but I never see any viruses at all, OSX, GNU/Linux, or even Windows 7.

    By the way, I run Xubuntu.

    Viruses have been supplanted by worms given that worms propagate more actively and, therefore, worms are more effective.

    Worms do still exist. Recent examples include Stuxnet and a variant of TDL-4; both of which target Windows.
