Its not a matter of switching. Its a matter of keeping current with your OS and all updates released by Microsoft. Using unpatched Windows systems on the Internet is a security risk to everyone. When there are insecure or infected computers connected to the Internet, malware spreads faster and more extensively, distributed denial-of-service attacks are easier to launch, spammers have more platforms from which to send e-mail and more machines become compromised. Whenever a security problem in its software is found, Microsoft will usually create a patch for it. After the patch is installed, attackers can't use the vulnerability to install malicious software on your computer.
