Heh. That's not even the whole story; A few days ago I saw a site reporting that Microsoft is SILENTLY FIXING security vulnerabilities; As in, not reporting them at all - just fixing them without telling anyone.*
So any study based on "official vulnerabilities" falls down right there. If the vendor isn't even honest about it there is no way in hell the numbers will tell us anything about the actual security provided when you run their OS.
*) I don't remember where I saw it though - If somebody could post the link that'd be kind.
