^ This Is what predominantly determines whether an AV Is warranted.

Having said that, In my view, every system should have an AV running- Irrespective of the end user's computing behavior and environment.

I respect your view. For me personally, I only run an Antivirus on Windows since, for Windows, it is highly recommended due to various factors, but on my FreeBSD partition I have no need for an antivirus in my specific circumstances.

I use Windows for video games; FreeBSD for everything else (including most coding and watching/pirating movies). How about you?

What is with this “okay boomer” fad going on lately? It’s pretty fucking annoying

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. And yes it's very true that you need a computer to function in modern society. But you don't need to be a technophobe. There are a lot of steps you can put in place to prevent the downsides to tech.

'okay boomer' isn't even a fad anymore. It died quickly. I was just saying it to be ironic

I certainly agree with having an AV Installed on the Windows platform- It Is susceptible to Infection, as opposed to Linux-based systems.

In terms of myself, I have 7 systems each dedicated to the tasks they're configured to perform. My main machine that's used for exploiting, has been heavily configured.

Just to name a few Implementations, IDS/IPS actively running, DNS servers encrypted (Primary & Secondary), Tor over VPN & VPN over Tor, bridges added to Tor's entry Node, 14-eyes countries excluded/restricted from the Exit Node, WebGL, WebRTC, Canvas and font fingerprinting disabled and their hash spoofed, all Internet traffic "forced" through the Tor Network, User Agent string (namely to anonymize the OS) changed as part of the majority, every application running In a Sandbox environment, AV, anti-malware, anti-exploit etc Installed, multiple VMs networked, three layers of AES-Twofish-Serpent encryption protecting my data, and the list goes on.

This covers (I'd say) around 30-35% of my setup. It's way beyond the scope of this post to state everything.
