Security, what security? laugh

Seriously, if you have the firewall running, you should be fine (don't flame me others).

I have had various versions of Linux up for over 4 years now, with no problem. Just don't run as root (you normally run as user anyway).

The only other concern is a wireless system, and even with this, I have had no problems.

As for XP, well enough said. You may want to download the latest service pack security update...
