bartenderstoneware Tails is security hardened, it's nothing like stock Debian and comparing it to it isn't a fair comparison, the vast majority of Linux distros are debian based as far as I understand it, Ubuntu is debian based
Debian is a popular base for popular distros like Kali Linux, and because linux has big security flaws? What flaws?
when a flaw is found, people work to patch it, I would be very surprised if there is any known major security flaws that are unpatched in Linux
if you use Tails as it was intended, it's a very secure OS
