Recent trojans are capable of working out the platform and infecting appropriately, so linux, mac etc are no less vulnerable now. Except: most linux users seem to be more savvy and know how to avoid becoming infected.
But go to an infected web site or click the wrong link in an email and it probably makes little difference now which system you are using.
I always tell my customers and friends to use Firefox with NoScript, whatever the platform, and learn to set it up and use it correctly. That is not foolproof but a good beginning. And regardless of email client, make sure it's reading and writing emails in Plain Text mode, otherwise you may be tempted to click on a disguised link.
Of course, if you are using Android with carelessly selected apps, your system is probably toast anyway.
