    And patches.
    1: Is it because as an OS is it inherently less safe and more vulnerable due to the way it's written.

    2: So much more complex with it being able to run on all kinds of hardware etc.

    3:is it a target of virus's and attacks that's constantly being tested.

    If I had to guess I'd think it's a combination of all the above.

    Swiss Cheese OS, very easy to break...

    Many fixes needed due to patchwork architecture and keeping backwards compatibility with old(er) software.

    Much harder to mess up Linux... :-)

    Windows source code has millions of lines, it's a wonder it works as well as it does

    Passport or Z10, whichever is nearest

    I really noticed it when I bought a little tablet with 32 gig and win 8.1 the first few days after getting it required several major updates and patches whittling the 32 which is actually 24 gig down to about 9 gig left!
