I'm considering running this OS alongside my current OS and would like to hear your thoughts on it, especially regarding how it holds up security-wise.

I've been running Ubuntu for years. Security is better, and viruses more rare. Whenever someone is at my home and needs to borrow a computer, it's always the Ubuntu system I loan. They can write Word docs, cruise the web, etc.

Thanks for the reply, Wayne. I'm curious to know what, if any, antivirus software do you use for this OS? My main concern is security which naturally includes prevention of unwanted bugs.

I run ClamAV on both my personal computers and my servers.

I see, I had never heard about this software before; probably because I'm new to Linux and all. I hope it won't be needing frequent updates.
