I would presume that that would happen after you got infected and started
spreading malware.
Scaring people from the start ought to bring more consciousness.

OK. I'll bite.

1) What antivirus are they going to force me to install on my Fedora
laptop?

2) How will they verify the presense of A/V software on a properly
firewalled
system?

3) If the answer to (2) is "run some sort of agent software on every box",
in how many different ways can this end badly?
