I will be adding a dedicated computer just for Internet finance needs such as online banking or buying something on the Internet.


I will remote desktop (or something similar) into the computer from only other Windows computers on my home network LAN.


Would you recommend Windows (probably 8) or Linux (probably Centos 6.4)?  Note that I get free Norton with my internet provider.


I might also do my taxes using TurboTax, and maybe later add something like QuickBooks.  If I go with Linux, I will probably create a virtual server on the Centos computer, load Windows on the virtual server, and run TurboTax, etc on the Windows virtual server.  Does this change your answer for my first question?


Thank you
