I don't often write here, but at the moment I don't see why BitFrost should be
used in the first case (except, because we _can_).
Why protect GNU/Linux from Windows?
If people install Windows on their XOs, then it's their problem.
And the Virus/BotNet/... can't spread to not Windows infected XOs, so there's
no reason to be afraid.
Or did I miss Windows getting preinstalled on every XO or something similarly
