Why Ubuntu? There are so many better Linux-based setups out there… like Fedora.

If I had to choose between the two, I’d stick with Microsoft Windows 7. The working world uses Windows, and let’s face it, you get what you pay for. With Ubuntu you get a very limited third party software selection, and despite their faults, Microsoft is pretty good at updating Windows promptly whenever new vulnerabilities are detected.

Microsoft is pretty good at updating Windows promptly whenever new vulnerabilities are detected.

The vulnerability that the conficker worm exploits were known about for months before Microsoft did anything about it. In fact Microsoft tends to always do a cost analysis before closing security risks. Also Microsoft releases their security updates on Tuesdays and people who make viruses plan to release their viruses on Wednesdays.
