I use macOS and linux, I really love a lot of things about macOS but Apple is slowly chipping away at those things. Linux isn't really special but the community is huge and there is a distro for everyone whether you want a pen-test focused one or an ultra minimal one or a secure one etc. Being well used means that the general underpinnings are pretty secure.

On top of there being a great distro for nearly every niche, there is a huge variety of potential customisations that are often extremely easy to set up, like icon themes.
