This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Ok, this looks like a loaded question from every possible angle. – Manuel Ferreria Aug 29 '09 at 20:13
There is no "safe" operating system! The only reason why Linux has been relatively safe was simply because it wasn't big enough as a target. The same with OS X. Sure, some hackers hack for fun but there are plenty of criminals out there who will go after the bigger targets where there's money. In general, that means Windows, since Windoes tends to be mostly used in commercial ways. – Wim ten Brink Aug 30 '09 at 1:59
