|Windows is used much more than Linux and Mac.|
Totally agree on that. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_operating_systems
|So Windows has much more viruses and other threats.If Mac (or Linux) were dominant there would had been much more malwares on them.(as much as on windows now). |
|[That argument] ignores Unix's dominance in a number of non-desktop specialties, including Web servers and scientific workstations. A virus/trojan/worm author who successfully targeted specifically Apache httpd Linux/x86 Web servers would both have an extremely target-rich environment and instantly earn lasting fame, and yet it doesn't happen."|
- says Rick Moen, an experienced Linux system administrator.
I found an article on ZDNet titled "Linux, Windows, and security FUD",
The Conclusion of that article was -
|In the meantime, Linux, which I freely admit isn't completely secure—no operating system on the planet ever will be—continues to be be trusted by the world's biggest Web sites, such as Google, Facebook, and Wikipedia and by such mission-critical sites as the New York Stock Exchange and the London Stock Exchange. Now, as it has been for decades, Linux remains more secure than Windows, and no FUD can refute this.|

I think it's more of your personal opinion what OS suits you better , you are an Apple fan then their products (iMac, Mac-book,iPad etc.) are the best and so are Linux/*nix or windows fans.
Whether you use a mac ,a windows based PC or Linux , there are many good tool-chains and softwares for all of them (except much good games1
on Linux) and you could be satisfied by any of them.
If all you do is listen to music , watch music or surf the net then it doesn't really matter whether you use windows xp , mac or a Linux based distribution.
1. Good games as in those ultra-high res AAA games produced by big companies , Linux do have many open source and nice games but they don't compete as well with those big shiny titles.
