Linux Some people hate the idea of adding proprietary software to their desktop Linux. For these people, there are Linux distributions such as gNewSense that use only free software. For the rest of us, who use distributions such as Fedora, openSUSE and Ubuntu, there are times we either want to, or feel forced to, add proprietary programs such as Adobe Flash or Skype or the ability to play proprietary audio and video formats such as MP3 or commercial DVDs to your Linux desktop. Here's how to do it.

I've used mostly windows. IMO, because it was the earliest target, experienced windows users are more aware of potential danger. it's like growing up in a war zone ;)
so i agree with you, in that if a user wants to feel carefree while "computing", os x seems the best among reasonably common oses. a common distro like -buntu is probably almost as good.
unfortunately none of these (os x, -buntu, windows) seem by default to resist the secondary level of attacks (on privacy).
