My guess would be: Lots more Linux servers than Windows ones, probably
lots that don't have system security patches applied[0] and lots and
lots and lots and lots and lots of PHP code running on them which is
even less likely to be getting security love :/

[0] MS are getting very good at annoying people into installing updates.
Most Linux server installs don't even try to make you install updates.
