Is Linux Still The Safest Operating System?

"While Linux has had more problems than it used to, it is
probably just as safe as the other operating systems that are on
the market. Where once it had a wide lead when it came to security,
that gap has narrowed a lot and there is very little difference
between it and the other operating systems. But when it comes to
using it as a server, it is still one of the safest operating
systems out there.
You can make a Linux server very hard to crack into. You just
have to be willing to learn about it and make sure that you know
what you are doing.
