    Linux is more secure than windows OS as it runs on written commands.

    I'll go with Linux also. Even the performance, I like it, but somehow I can also say that windows is good..

    Linux is more secure according to me.

    Given the Snowden revelations, you might wonder whether it is possible to free ourselves from mass surveillance by the NSA even if we switched from Microsoft to Linux. It is true that the NSA will still be able to monitor our internet and phone activity. But in switching to Linux, the NSA will no longer be able to reach right inside of our computers. The NSA will not be able to copy data that is in our computers, they will no longer be able to look at our personal files and they will no longer have the power to shut down our computers or alter the programs in our computers. The primary reason Linux is more secure than Windows is because Linux does not have an open back door which allows anyone other than you to stop or modify your computer without your permission. So moving to Linux is at least a partial step in the right direction.

    Linux in general, but what distribution do you have in mind? There are many OSs based on Linux core, some can be more secure ( like Arch), and some can be less ( like Ubuntu).

    Of course Linux is the highly secured OS. Technically I am not that much aware of the fact but have learned from many experts that its the most recommended and secured OS.

    The more it will be secure to use if they don't allow sudo to any forks.
    Fedora particularly. Although this derivative has become more of a hardware monster, I still like their spins to which their light weight versions can still work on not so high end computers.

    Linux is highly secured as it is command based and it has not open back door as well as windows that are two reasons why it is secured

    Between linux and windows it's got to be linux. As much as I love windows, viruses, malware et are a daily struggle to keep on top of.

    Linux 'out of the box' can't be surpassed in terms of security. How would you attack it? :)

    CentOS and Debian are distributions of choice, in this regard...

    My recommendation is windows. I am a windows user. I feel much comfortable & safety in windows. Obviously it's Windows 7.

    Linux of course, but there are several distros ("versions"). You'll love the ones that edged for security...

    Linux. Because most (big part) of viruses are being created for Windows system. Linux is hard to learn and that's why it is most secured

    Linux is and has always been a very secure operating system. Although it still can be attacked when compared to Windows, it much more secure
