Google knows everything about you, and if you have FB, you're as well as can go naked.
^ This. Social Media has way more impact to one's privacy that OS selection.

Welcome back Crazy Photon! Nice to see an old face around here (I'm not calling you old btw).
Thanks! I do have a beard nowadays, so yeah, a bit more "seasoned"

lol, that's a pretty bold assumption to go outright Linux or Mac. Or just keep MS's OS from under your thumb and manage it.
It really depends on the type of people, all of the OSs are vulnerable if not properly hardened. Even Windows with proper hardening and tuning can be good enough. Personally, I like having better knowledge of which services are running, hence I like Arch Linux, but it's not something that everyone is willing to do. I also use OS X daily. I do have a couple of windows boxes but I barely use them (my gf does though).
