It's not your OS that determines whether you're "safe" to use a publicly available wi-fi network or not. The security (or lack of it) is the same whether you are using Windows or Linux, since it is determined by the network settings of the network, which are determined by the network server, not by the user's OS.
Using a VPN will also not affect the security of using an unsafe network, unless the VPN client you use employs end to end encryption.
In that regard, using the Tor browser should give you a reasonable level of privacy, though personally, if I had something "sensitive" I had to do online, I would not do it over an "open" network.
