If you want to run windows on the Mac you can. Not sure why you would but you can.
That is a major misconception. Macs can get malware just like any other computer in the world. There are just less of them in the world because of Mac's smaller market share. Why write a program to infect macs that have maybe 10% market share, when you can write a +80% market share windows.
With all that said, go Linux, because it's free and because you like doing stuff the hard way.
