Those who want to poke holes in this study should be able to find ample opportunity. Microsoft vulnerabilities are less likely to be disclosed prior to patching, to the point that the median "days of risk" for Windows was zero.
That's not a hole. It shores up the conclusion by offering an explanation. If Microsoft can keep vulnerabilities secret until there's a fix for them, that's a reason to run your web server on Microsoft products instead of open source.
