‘Not necessarily true. Windows has architectural weaknesses not present in other OSs.”
Really? Windows 7 has architectural weaknesses?
Most malware is introduced through user action. Click on a pdf or a jpg and the rest is easy.
Windows7 was running on a piece of avionics test equipment in 2008 when this accident occurred? Not by a long shot.
My considered opinion is that it would be likely WindowsXP... and maybe even Windows98. .. and probably not updated.
It's still natively backwards-compatible with Windows 3.1. I'd be scared if Model-T parts still fit my car.
