Not true. Win can be safe, its made unsecure by design.Well makes sense if you think about it. The majority of computer viruses have been written for Windows because it's the dominant OS used worldwide

Nothing to do with the most popular. The only reason is, Windows by default at install makes you the root user. Then by default it creates another disabled admin account...with NO password. Virusses can't run or do damage if you are not root. You can actually make it more secure by making it behave like linux...by not using an admin account.

Android's openness and ease of getting into the store makes it more popular to write malware for. But that does not make you less save. Only user stupidity makes you less save, whether you have 2 virusses or 100. Now privacy is another matter.
