Yes and no. The thing about Windows is that it can be infected without
you even touching a single web page. Just connect to the Internet
without a firewall, and leave it connected for some minutes without
doing anything. The sasser worm hit me that way once. Then there are
some which can infect you via some vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer.
Such vulnerabilities are generally not present in *nix OSes.
