As the comments on the post say, "after discarding all evidence to the contrary, the hypotesis was proven". If its true they not considered worms attacks, this study is very biased. Also, they take the numbers as absolute amounts in a total of succesful attacks; I think it would have been better to see what proportion there is between successful attacks and failed ones. I'm sure that would give very diferent results. I am not at all a Linux geek or anything like that, I use Windows; but judging by all I've read on the Net, it seems MS has many to loose and they're doing their own "studies" to prove the improvable and keep customers.
