Not alone, no.

As with all tests like these... One has to question methodology, corpus etc etc.
The paid "giants" have been playing this kind of game (with the aid of
"unbiased" magazines, institutes etc etc) for ages. Although the
numbers say something, they are (usually) pretty far from the whole,
complete, truth.

So, say this instead:
Hope none of you are only using one method of defence, but actually
spend time or money on getting at least a couple, possibly more,
antivirus products.
