Do you *really* believe that Linux apps are as insecurely *designed* as Windows apps?
Contemporarily, linux apps are most often better designed, from a security vantage point, than windows apps. However, after linux gains broader acceptance (which is only a matter of time), many of the same braindead developers that write for windows now, will move to developing for linux or linux and windows. At that point, a greater percentage of linux apps will suck too. :-S You can say "Well, linux distributors are smart enough not to bundle those badly written apps", but there will be a larger percentage of braindead linux distributors then too.
