Not really, it's just a totally different system, and since PCs are the huge majority, people creating viruses are going to create them on the most commonly used platform. I wouldn't use one *unless* you are plugging in random devices where you haven't had full control over what's on them. Since I do repairs and restores on hard drives, memory cards, USB devices, etc I have antivirus on all my computers and I've actually had more viruses on my Macs.
