A while ago I would have said windows is a fine choice. But now wih the revelations regarding NSA backdoors, I'd say these days you absolutely have to go with an open-source OS.

then windows 7 when it comes to bitcoin software like qt and multibit?
Windows 8 is considered unsafe to use.
Which version is considered 'safe' then? XP? 7?

What do you mean by safe? Hackers safe or backdoors that even microsoft isn't aware of safe?

I don't think that it's in any way in microsoft's interest to have backdoors installed intentionally. I mean the company will collapse if something like that ever comes out.
