Most likely true. If I may summarise for Windows:

"Nobody from Microsoft cares about security issues in Windows."

They have all the resources in the world and yet I have to run
anti-virus software (to stop annoyances like 1000 bogus messages every
day), although none of my Linux machines can get infected. If Microsoft
received the bandwidth bill for all that e-mail traffic, they would go
broke within one month.
