Is Linux a secure operating system?


I stumbled across this article that explains how Linux is not a secure operating system. As a very new user of Linux Mint as a daily driver, it is scary and makes me want to throw my hands in the air and run back into the seemingly soft, safe hands of a Mac.

The same author wrote this Linux hardening guide but it looks very complicated at first glance.

Can someone assuage my fears?
