so you are comfortable. Playing the odds that the guy who is hacked isn't you
I'm saying it will happen to some people
the more that they leave it the easier it will be to do and the more it will be combined with other attacks and the more common it will become
Linux is easy to boot up, no need to install it you can do it from a live DVD.

Someone into hacking or pentesting can get the software needed.

There's a world of difference between "fiddling with tech" and writing hack scripts or even using the command line to run readily prepared hack scripts.

Once you've spent the time getting in (if you manage it) what are you going to do? A hacker has to have a reason to hack. Yes there's the "because I can" scenario but once done they don't tend to go any further unless they are looking for something specific on the person or company.
