Ubuntu's Unity GUI isn't my speed. But that doesn't matter for the majority of end-users. My mother is on the phone, and she says she thinks her AOL email is compromised because one of her friends got one of those things from her that says she's in London and lost all her credit cards and she needs to send her money. And she's getting all kinds of weird corrupted hard drive scary messages on the screen. That sounds like a virus to me.
