Linux already does get attacked - daily. Before I retired all the linux systems in the center were attacked. constantly.

Most of the attacks just didn't work.

Linux has a much better foundation for security, better partitioning, better design, better implementation.

Unlike proprietary systems, ALL bugs get action, including the security bugs. Anyone can look and work on the bugs they find.

Windows... Nope.
