Is Antivirus dead?

After Robert O'Callahans blog posts and some really good discussions on some tech sites  I am asking this questions:


Is he true saying "antivirus software vendors are terrible; don't buy antivirus software, and uininstall it if you already have it (except, on Windows, for Microsoft's)." ?


Should we really deinstall third-vendor antivirus software and only trust on Microsoft's security competence?


Is the classic Antivirus software really dead?

Who is this Antivirus you are talking about?

Of course, cyber criminals are one step ahead, but I don't agree with you antivirus needed at least free.

This is an opinion. And it is ok. But we live in a virus world. And we need some protection, a kind of "vaccination". In this case ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARES.

Computers, phones etc does not get ill, if they have enough protection.
