Viruses are less of a threat on Linux. The very way a Linux system is designed makes it very difficult for a virus to function as it does in Windows. This also applies to spyware, malware, etc. The fact that almost no viruses are written for Linux also adds a nicer sense of warmth. Wouldn’t be nice to read the almost endless stream of security holes in Windows and know it does not apply to you?
Basically, you don't need to care about the security. As long as you have an up-to-date system, it is 100% safe. No need for installing, additional firewalls, antivirus, antispyware (etc) software.
Who is using Ubuntu?
Check out who and why is using Ubuntu Linux. Read the stories below.
I switched to Ubuntu Linux about one year ago now. Since this moment, I never enjoyed computing that much. Working with a stable, virus-free system is very, very relaxing. If you like playing a bit with you computer, you'll discover that Ubuntu, and all other Linux distributions, are so powerful you won't believe it :). The download button is up there.

Ubuntu is single-handedly changing the way we compute again for the first time in ages. It takes stability and simplicity and puts them together to create an operating system that rivals the stability of Mac OS X and far exceeds the graphical sweetness of both Mac OS 10.5.x and Windows Vista with just a little bit of tweaking. The graphical synaptic package manager makes it easy to find and install extensions to Ubuntu, and all of the software is open source (free): you can't beat that. You don't need to be an expert to use it, but all experts use some variation of what Ubuntu uses (Linux/Unix/BSD).
i've been off and off linux for the past few years, but it looks like they have won me over with ubuntu hardy 8.04. dont care what any one says, this is when people are going to start turning to linux (big time), microsoft are going to feel it :), anyways i have enjoyed using ubuntu. easiest of them all so far. all though some trouble getting my dvb card to work only took me 15 mins on google to figure it out. (im trying to convert my mates as hmmmm this msg is being typed.
