Oh, for god's sake... I am so tired of hearing this ancient line of nonsense.
Windows does not have more viruses because it's exploited more -- it has more viruses because the fundamental nature of the OS (running everything by default at Administrator level) allows more viruses to exist. (It's what they tried to fix with Vista, remember?)
If everyone were to migrate to Linux (for example, but any other OS other than Windows seems to get it right), yes, viruses would still exist, but not anywhere near as many as do today.
Though, one could argue that maybe Windows' development may have taken a different route had they not had to dumb everything down (hence, everything running as Administrator) for John Q. Public, however at this point the argument becomes very esoteric. In other words, who really gives a rat's ass.
