Google BBC News reports: Google has begun to phase out support for Internet Explorer 6, the browser identified as the weak link in a "sophisticated and targeted" cyber attack on the search engine. The firm said from 1 March some of its services, such as Google Docs, would not work "properly" with the browser. It recommended individuals and firms upgrade "as soon as possible".

Linux is still not ready for home users (non techinical people). Windows & MAC has more & better applications for home users.
I would say as OS (Kernel) Windows & Linux both are secure enough. Only the applications like IE,Firefox,Flash, Adobe PDF reader that runs on these has bugs (security vulnerable).
Basically all software in this world has security bugs but the hacker trys to find only on those that are popular by high usage/users.
