And to further the point there are a lot of new users to computers. Not just switchers but actually people who have a Mac as there first computing experience. Some of those folks do not understand at all the difference between the two. I had the same question as a Windows user coming to Mac. But after doing my own research and thinking of my past usage and experience I determined that I did not need AV. Even people that know the difference between malware and a virus sometimes make the dubious mistake of contracting malware because they click too quickly. I call those folks "click happy." It takes experience to get good at discerning what is good, bad, spoofed etc.

My two cents worth.
