Or maybe it's the fact that Apple's software has a more stable core. Don't forget, Unix (of which OS X is based upon) has been around for many years longer than Windows, and proper security was built into them from the get-go. For Windows, security is an add-on (and a poorly developed on at that). Windows was built around the "convenience" paradigm, and convenience is simply not compatible with "security". Beyond that, security wasn't that big of a deal/problem until computers (with real power) were turned into a home appliance, making them available to legions of morons and evil-doers around the world.
