    It appears the security of Linux is actually a myth than a fact.

    Why, because of a vulnerability or two? Myth and fact would relate to actual exploits.

    @olverjia you've got the right idea, but for the wrong reason, IMO. One nasty vulnerability is not the same as a long track record of nasty vulnerabilities.

    (GNU/Linux has the latter too, though.)

    I still pretty safe with Ubuntu, this was patched when it was discovered as a potential vulnerability.
