No OS is immune to social hacking.

At work we run Windows servers and workstations with proper lock down security configurations. Never been hacked or exposed to malware so far. Windows can be indeed as secure as Linux or UNIX or FreeBSD and etc...

And its not always up to the OS, it also has to do with on how you configure the routers and firewall devices as well.

No OS is 100% secure.
