Does ubuntu get so many viruses like microsoft?
Can I install ubuntu without an antivieus software? Will it get damaged like windows from the not using of the antivirus soft ware?

I've never bothered to install an AV on Linux...yes it's possible to get a virus but it's rare.

There ARE viruses, but only a fraction of the
number attacking machines running Windows.
If you are willing to take that (minimal) risk, then
yes, you can install ubuntu without AV software.
The question is, why? What do you gain by not
having any such protection?

No! None of the Linux distributions get as many viruses as Windows does.
