Why Linux is more secure than Windows

I stumbled upon a question on Quora. The question is: How complicated is the code for Microsoft Windows? The person who answered it shared a link to another question: Why windows is less secure than linux? and shared two images. These images are one of the best examples of high complexity leading you to less security. So here is the linux call trace for apache on linux:

This might seem already complex, but wait until you see the call trace for Microsoft IIS on Windows:

The images describe it all. More complexity usually leads to more bugs and more bugs lead to more security problems. Let’s all hope Windows developers refactor Windows so it becomes more like Linux: simple.
