I think the lack of market share is at least part of the reason for Linux's security. If the tables where turned I wouldn't like to see the sheer number of hackers/exploiters hitting Linux that currently target Windows.
Just think if Linux had became the dominant OS player we might be talking about how secure Windows is.
At the same time the EU might be getting tore into KDE for bundling Konqueror :)
A good reason not to use Ubuntu, where KDE does not get resources.
The Kubuntu Distribution is now an official part of Ubuntu. They run the same base OS, but have developers who configure the KDE side of things.
