Quote from article:

"Worms, site defacements, and DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks
strike non-Microsoft servers daily. Microsoft simply makes a juicier target,
mostly by virtue of its gigantic installed base, than any of its
competitors."

Which is a load of crap.  This justifies email viruses.  Apache owns 60% of
the webserver market.  IIS about 20 to 25%.
