    Every Operating system is secure if it is handled properly because OS security encompasses different techniques and methods which ensures safety from threats and attacks. A secure operating system protects confidentiality, OS integrity and availability. OS security provides certain measures that are used to protect the OS from threats,viruses, worms, malware. It can be approached in many ways:-
    1) Performing regular OS patch updates.
    2) Installing updated anti-virus software.
    3) Analyzing all incoming and outgoing network traffic through a firewall.
    4) Creating secure accounts.
    You can also take support from AskPCExperts as it provides resolution to all kind of OS issues.

    Not sure about Linux and Unix, but I'm pretty sure Windows has terrible vulnerabilities. I can't tell you how many countless hours I've spent trying to clean someone's computer of a virus!

    I'm assuming that you are asking for the Server OS, if so then I would go with Unix.

    I have been using linux since the start and I prefer it over others. Linux is more stable and flexible. And the prices are way cheaper than windows too :)

    Windows XP is less secure because it is not supported by Microsoft anymore so any security holes are exploited.
    Mac OS is NOT more secure, there are just less viruses created for it. The OS is only as secure as you make it: up to date anti virus, firewall, telling sites not to save your password, not downloading from dodgy sites etc.
    Security wise, I would say that linux is fairly good, but a lot to learn. If you are happy with Windows, just upgrade your OS to the latest (Windows 7) rather than changing to Mac, where you need to learn a new OS and spend £1000 + on a new machine.

    Between all three operating system Linux is more secure. It has many advantage over window platform. In window, users have administrator access by default, which means they have access to everything on system, even its more crucial part. So, viruses attack on Windows platform mostly. But< Linus has strong privileges with no root access. For security purpose, it is best platform ever.
