I don't follow how this follows from your erroneous attribution. But if
you're saying that no OS is immune from some form of insecurity, you're
wasting your breath because that man is made of straw.

On the other hand, some operating systems are more secure than others
(*for whatever reasons*). I think that statement is statistically
verifiable. (I was going to invent one of those strained, if handy, car
analogies but thought better of it.)
