Well, Steve Balmer referred to the GPL, Free Software, and Linux as "a mutating virus which contaminates everything it touches". His speech went on to say how Free software isn't free, it will end up costing a corporation more, it poisons a programmer's work ethic, is "un-American and a threat to our way of life", and that these communist hippies will eat your children...

So don't use Linux, it'll make you sick!

Personally, I like this wallpaper. (and am not American, and use Free Software, including Linux, so am already considered a virus by some..) When was the last time kde-look.org had photo from an electron microscope?

Virii sarcastic!

Take the picture for what it is, don't put any meaning behind it :)

Agreed. It's cool and not-too-geeky :-)

Not sure what you are meaning here? Could you clarify?

here is my interpretation.
a virus doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad thing.
a virus by nature is catchy. goes from 1 host to another spreading itself.
Linux is like this. it spreads by 1 linux user telling a friend and getting the friend "infected"

Linux obviously isn't a bad thing so getting infected is a good thing. ;)

more or less this is a play on words.

exactly. it's a one of a kind "virus," goes from "host" to "host," changing how the "host" works. I mean, you don't hear people saying, "Hey! Did you check out THIS distro of windoze?" of course not, or at least I never have. Linux is one of a kind.
