After 2 nasty rootkits and countless low level Adware infections to several computers in my home, I am wanting to consider alternatives to Windows.
I have loaded PCLOS KDE on a LiveCD and Lucid Puppy on a LiveUSB and am testing both.
My question is, how secure is Linux and how impervious is it to infections? Does it require protection like Windows?
I would appreciate any advice you have.
