Not this old saw again. The marketshare excuse for security exploits was pulled out of Bill Gates's butt back in the early days of Windows XP. The excuse is ahistoric. At the time exploits to Windows XP nearly brought Microsoft to its knees. Despite the number and seriousness of extant XP exploits, Windows 98 was actually still much more popular. Security vulnerabilities and exploits are driven by design and design flaws, not marketshare.
