    I know Linux very well, and what it can do. I've installed and used about everything from Arch to Zorin

    The point being the 8 year old (or anyone else) doesn't have to know Linux (which runs and looks exactly like Windows). They just have to know how to download a couple of files and copy it to a USB drive. Installing and configuring a game is much more difficult and a child can do that any day of the week.

    Windows 10 Is the Most Secure Windows System: maybe / likely true.

    Windows 10 Is the Most Secure Operating System: I don't think so.

    Microsoft was also talking about Enterprise. A janitor with a USB flash drive can access every file on every Windows PC hard drive in an office. Most PCs are only secured with the logon password. In this case that's not good enough.

    Windows 10 is more secure


    Windows 10 is so secure I can't even get into my own files.

    I have no doubt that Windows 10 is the most secure OS or at least the most secure Windows version. Just about every time I check for updates I'm getting new security updates.

    I think no system is completely secure against someone who has physical access. For home users the most important security component is their router. If someone is knowledgeable enough to bypass the hardware firewall in the router, clearly they will figure out how to defeat any usual software defenses that a typical home user might employ. In the enterprise, the important issue is how to securely limit the ability of regular users to access files across the network. We don't use Windows networking where I work, so I can't say anything about how effective Windows is in this respect.

    I completely agree though that no individual home user can really say anything regarding Windows security out of personal experience: it's highly unlikely that they have ever been a target of hacking attack.

    Well only if the companies IT dept are either very brave, very naive or they consider that their PCs simply have nothing private on them.

    Even a hardened Linux box is easy when you have physical access. Physical access is everything.

    Remove optical drives, disable usb, use Bitlocker, use a BIOS password, weld your case shut, bury your computer in the desert. That gets you mostly secure.
