How about we deal with his question instead of once again being overly literal? You may think you're educating, but you're honestly just being misleading. There is malware for the Mac, which is what the common person is really looking for when they say "virus". They don't know any better.

Why not just be honest instead of feeling the need to give one part of the story without the rest? There's a whole lot more you can be telling them than just "there are no viruses for the Mac." There's a lot more to that story.

I would point you to this post as a reminder:
Official antivirus, malware, and firewall FAQ


To the OP, read the FAQ linked in the first post and make your decision based off what you read.
