There's one point I don't think anyone else has brought up. Aren't most Linux bugs discovered by people looking at the code while most Microsoft bugs are discovered by someone poking holes at a machine running Microsoft (i.e. through exploit program attempts)?
If this is true, I'd rather run an OS that has dozens of people per week/month saying "I was looking at this code and I think I've found a potential problem" rather than an OS that has a handful of people saying "I can root your machine, here's the program that does it".
