When keeping in mind hackers, spyware, and viruses, use Linux. Spyware and viruses find Linux a hostile environment. Hackers, that is a matter of keeping your Linux security up to date and your passwords current. There are distros of Linux created with security in mind. Windows is a bit of a joke.

I agree with everybody. You should go for Linux. Or you should try OpenBSD. I suggest that either you use Window$ or Linux, you must have a firewall.

Well its LINUX no doubt about it. But generally Solaris is best for the purpose.

i think linux box is better... its very much secure against hackers and viruses... also there is lot of flexibility... possibilities are limitless with linux if you have the right knowledge..
