According to this: https://madaidans-insecurities.github.io/security-privacy-advice.html Linux is bad from security perspective, author advises you to use WIndows 10 in S mode, macOS or ChromeOS for more securit. Is it true or he is biased?

yeah, and you know what, this guy is involved in developing on Whonix and some other projects, because of this, people can believe this nonsense because he is "expert" or "authority"

<not a silver bullet but it's true that sandboxing should be used more often.

No

Not that either; he is just plain wrong in most of his points.

Seems like a knowledgeable one and knews flaws of foss/linux stuff but they just happen to use that for a quality troll post.
From security standpoint, those official devices and official builds are good, but let's not forget security and privacy are different.
Sure there is backdoors everywhere which is a different matter and more likely for targeted deanonymization which even your experienced cryptographer or privacy expert might not even know about.
Modern motherboards and laptops have UEFI firmware and ring negative access through the programs in ring 3, everything is compromised.

Madaidans is a cunt. He appears in every itoddler / brave / windows shilling thread on major imageboards. He doesn't deserve to be on the internet.
