I ain't no Windows-advocate but I find this argument a bit weak.
Nowadays all the modern operating systems have the same problems: To
much installed services by default, weak administration and the general
reluctance of users to pay attentions to security-updates and
best-practise when it comes to using common sense.
Though there's a technical problem with Windows which Roger explained on
his talk at 24C3 , it eventually runs out of sockets due to the way
Windows allocates non-pageable memory-areas.
