I've been running my macs with OS X now for several years without using ANY virus protection. No problems at all. My internet connection is dial-up and that reduces my exposure too. > 2. Is it even possible for a virus to get traction in OSX? It is technically possible depending on how it is delivered (see Steve's post for example) but it is more difficult that windows. Even if I thought there were potential viruses ready to infect my machine, I'd use anything but Norton.
