I would like to direct your points to the fact that most linux distro's
in a standard install are as much as or more of a security issue as
Windows. Adjusting thing's like with windows and removing exploitable
non useful applications/daemons/services that get installed by default
at installation increases the security on BOTH platforms.
My 5 cents.
