Security is more of a 'discouragement.' The more security you have, the harder it is to be hacked, but it is never possible to be secure if you only have two choices like you suggest M1dget. The world is not that simple thankfully.
For an OS some part of it are secure, some part are not and there's different layer of security to it so you can't go straight out and say that it's secure or not. It's layer and application dependant.
