Which OS is batter for internet use?

I am using Win XP. I also have installed an anti-virus called AVG (free version). I think Linux provides more security and advance features.

Re: Which OS is batter for internet use?

Linux is definitely more secure and provides more flexibility, it is also better if you are a developer, but you won't be up and running in Linux without a minimum of time learning how to use Linux (the good point is that once you start using Linux, you realize it provides gains in efficiency -e.g. cron tasks). The best option for someone already running Windows would be a dual boot solution (both operating systems are installed on your computer and you decide which one to use at the moment you start your computer).

Linux is good because of its security protection, but I still prefer to use windows. I've been using this OS for a couple of years and so far I haven't encountered a major problem with it.

Amusingly, I watched "The Social Network" yesterday and couldn't help but notice that Marck Zuckerberg was working on a Linux platform in the movie ...

Secure browsing is the prime requirement for all the internet users, and Linux is good as a secure OS for the users.

And if you boot Linux from a flash drive (or USB key) you won't even leave any private information on your computer.
You might also be interested in the TOR network (onion distribution) which allows you to encrypt and anonymize your connection (via P2P relays).

I think Windows XP is still the best for Internet use, it is more safe for me.

Linux does because there is about a 0.1% chance of getting Infected.

I am using Windows 7. Surfing and loading pages with Windows 7 is way faster than XP
