Many of those Single user design is still used in modern version of windows.

So if a virus infect a Linux system it is limited to that particular user alone where as in windows access to system files and access to every users is pretty easy. Hence the consequences of virus attach can be much more.

Regular updates are available freely

Different desktop managers:

More security:
As discussed earlier security patches are available easily and freely,most of the Linux systems are secure. Even the patching is made easy with the help of different package managers.
