If you care about your security and are still using windows you are doing it wrong.

No wonder you posted anonymously. I'd want anonymity too if I'd posted such a weak attempt at trolling. I'm no fan of Windows but I'm also not blinded by fanboyism, thinking by using a niche OS I'm safe. You might be *safer* on another OS, but you're not *safe.* Security takes a lot of effort, no faint amount of smarts, and a bit of annoyance to the user. Windows has problems, but there isn't an OS out there that doesn't have vulnerabilities or can be/has been cracked.

There are a hell of a lot of busted Linux installs out there, and that's just the start of it. This DoxBox sounds pretty neat.

A non-free OS can never be secure. This isn't trolling or fanboyism, it's just plain obvious.

Backdoor? Phone-home routine? There is just no easy way to tell without the source. Plus, there is no way to fix it without being able to legally modify and run your own fixes.
