  • 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. Commented Aug 30, 2009 at 1:59
