Go to the first link that i posted and find the paragraph called '[3] Better patch management would not have solved this'.

Of course there're viruses that affect Linux and recently one famous virii coder made the first virus that infect 64bit executables, but all of us will agree that Windows is (by far and since years) the worst O.S on security-related questions, and no, i don't accept that's the worst because it's the most spread O.S on the world, this is the typical Microsoft excuse (in my humble opinion): code fast, reach release timelines and left open big security holes ...
