Note all the microshaft funded trolls and their cumpanies
such as the one Burpford works for fail to mention
Microshaft and its OSen expee was responsible because they won't
get paid if they post anything against microshaft.

Use Linux instead.

China is switching to Linux by 2020, and the process hsa
begun already and so it didn't have much of an outbreak.

All the major commerical ransomware attacks, all the major
virus outbreaks that do all the commercial damage, all
the major phishing attacks all involve swiss cheesy
Microshaft OSen.

No one will be compensated for this outbreak.
You must pay your own repair bills for all the fake
security in Microshit products yourself.

You could instead save money and switch to Open Source Linux.
Its free and secure.
And if you could write a virus for it, (too difficult
for mere mortals),
then you would be hailed a hero, and given best job
offers :)

Machinery and equipment can only function with compatible software which is mostly MS. How would Linux in a machines designed for Windows work? If I downloaded Linux would my printer work?

Use Linux instead.
If you think Linux can't be hacked you're fooling yourself. (I've used
Linux as my primary OS for about 20 years now so am very familiar with
its good and bad points.) There are plenty of exploits out there for
Linux systems, primarily used against Linux servers. In fact OpenSUSE
recently had a major security breach:

https://lwn.net/Articles/722591/

Here's a nasty kernel vulnerability that was recently documented:

https://googleprojectzero.blogspot.ca/2017/05/exploiting-linux-kernel-via-packet.html

Also note that the majority of IoT devices that are routinely compromised
and used in botnets are Linux based:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirai_(malware)

Running Linux is no guarantee of security if improperly configured and not
kept up to date. Even then there can be zero-day exploits that bite you in
the rear before updates are deployed.

This is because Windows is the common operating system used in
businesses. Linux is most commonly found on servers so that is where
the threats against it are primarily found. If Linux were to be widely
adopted as a desktop OS you can bet that there would be plenty of malware
targeting it.

After reading this sensible post, one might have expected a hysterical
response from Linux aficionado 7 -- but so far all remains quiet on
the Linux front...

Despite the fact that Linux was in the top three of the most
vulnerable operating systems in 2014?
http://thehackernews.com/2015/02/vulnerable-operating-system.html

Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 were nowhere near the top three.
