I don't see the issue with using windows.

It's good software, especially with the creators update.

There are programmes and other things you can do to provide you with privacy where you need it. Linux isn't that much more secure if you are really up against someone serious.

You can cuss me for using windows, but I'm fucking around with augmented reality, while OP Linux can't even get the mic to work :p

The issue isn't security from external threats (although that is also significantly improved in Linux), it's the fact that Windows is proprietary (closed source, corporate license etc). You have no clue what's going on with your PC; and it's been proven time and time agani that Microsoft is doing plenty of unethical things. Nothing executed in the frame of a corrupt OS can protect you against that same OS, and as long as the software is not open source or FOSS, it can be considered corrupt.

Then there's also the whole concept of FOSS, that i really like, and want to support.

Here's an introduction to Free and Open Source Software: Why FOSS?
