I'm currently running Jaunty on my laptop. The primary reason why I preferred Ubuntu on my laptop is its resistance to viruses; and the secondary reason is its usability and "freeness".
Unfortunately, I need to install Picasa for Linux. With this, it installs Wine automatically in order to run the application.
My question is: If I install Wine, will my system be vulnerable to viruses and other nasty things that Windows is known for?
Need a straight and honest opinion. Thanks.
