Viruses DO affect Linux, but there are
far more Windoze machines out there, so
virus writers go for the bigger market
to get the most "bang for the buck" (mostly
bragging rights, I guess...)

If viruses didn't affect Linux then there would be no need for anti-virus software. Remember quite a few of the viruses are written by the companies so that you will buy their software, whatever platform you are on! :-\
