choosing secure and stable OS

I would like to choose an OS which is both very secure and very stable.

Which one of these 2 would be the best option: FreeBSD or Solaris 10 ?

I plan to use this OS as a very basic desktop pc using: a word processing program, emule/amule/p2p and an email client such as evolution.

1. OpenBSD has a reputation to be more secure than FreeBSD.

2. Any OS should be "hardened" according to your intended application.
