It's entirely up to you how secure you want to be.
If you want to be secure in a cyber world then learn a real OS -
Linux / BSD and such. If you don't care then be ignorant.
I don't feel sorry or that I'm paying anything when some Win lamers
lose their photo album or their kids' homework, or their Win boxes are
participating in some hackers' attacks.
It was their choice, not mine, what system to run.
My entire family including my parents and my kids is running different
flavors of Linux and BSD.

You have to pay something for quality things.
You're paying with your time and brain power when you're learning to use
Linux / BSD. And you're just praying when you're using Winblows.
To each its own.
