Microsoft = poor; Your best alternate choice?

Security researchers have discovered a zero-day vulnerability in Microsoft Word, which is already being actively exploited by hackers in China and Taiwan.

Windows has certainly become *THE target*.

Mozilla is part way there.

They just need to add a W.P. and database that are bulletproof.

I need a low profile alternate choice so as not to waste so much time on cleaning malware.

I see a mess of unfinished possible alternates out there, Redhat, Ubuntu, Mac, Mozzilla, what would you choose? TG
