No, not "tinfoil hat" advice, but based on common sense. Windows may not be
fundamentally less secure than Linux/Mac/BSD/Chrome/etc, but because it's
so widely used it's a popular attack vector. Avoid Windows and you
automatically avoid all Windows-based exploits/malware. Of course that
doesn't make you immune to attacks/malware, and you'll need to remain
vigilant and cautious with whichever platform you choose.
