Which Safer: Linux, Windows or Mac OS X?

Is using open supply (Linux) indicates safe from viruses than proprietary (Windows) that has been so well-known?. I feel the answer is yes. Presently, users of Linux a lot more safe than Windows customers due to the fact Windows virus more common than viruses on Linux.

But if we could give a small overview of the basic principles of security. Fundamentally, all man-produced application that brings nature of its creator (human) is not ideal and often has a weakness, it really is referred to as security holes (vulnerabilities) and vulnerabilities can be exploited by somebody with malicious code to exploit the OS. 

To this day there is no OS that does not have security holes, and each day new vulnerabilities are usually found, so the statement that much more accurately reflects the situation is 'The query is not the protected application of the virus but if the criminals had been motivated to exploit the applications'.

For reference, you can see the three hyperlinks beneath:
  1. Mac OS the former never got a virus, but due to its popularity higher causing virus makers began targeting the Mac OS, and Apple had to retract its claim that the Mac OS can not be infected with viruses. Do Macs Get Viruses? Appple Removes Boast That OS X 'Doesnt't Get Computer Viruses'
  2. Besides Flashback virus that infects ten% of customers of Mac OS and Android OS (which is Open Supply) is also expanding malicious malware (malicious application) 300%, much greater than Windows malware that exist right now. Q2 2012: Flashback infects ten% of Macs, Android malware up 300%
  3. The story of Linux is immune to viruses. Myth Busting: Is Linux Immune to Viruses?

Do you feel, which one is much more safe??
