"Yesterday I updated the SuperDAT file, which the virus scanner
needs, on my company notebook running Windows XP. I do this twice a
week. The software does a complete HD scan overnight and in the
morning I normally only check to see if it found some malware or if
I still have a supposedly "clean" system. This time, I ran the scan
during the day because I wanted to know the number of files it
scanned. The virus scanner's result: 418,769 files on a 40 GByte
disk, which is 88% full.
"So, how many files do my Linux machines host?
Curious, I ran ls -lR / | wc -l on my main
workstation running SUSE 9.1. Result: 1,635,315 files and
