See this:
No, linux was not made with security in mind. I've been researching this security related stuff for over 5 years now and the above article that I linked to well summarizes my findings. Windows security have improved a lot, same with Android (Android != Linux) and MacOS but traditional linux distros haven't improved and incompetent solutions like flatpak, firejail etc aren't enough for reasonably secure desktop. Although there are some good security tools like bubblewrap, selinux, verified boot etc but they're not widely used. Also Ubuntu is just marketing.
