Macs are just more secure?

Or maybe, we just more ignored for a while. I know almost nothing about software security, but I find it hard to believe that Apple write much more secure code than Microsoft, considering there relative R&D budgets $1.1 billion to $8.6 billion.

Why does MS spend so much more? I think it is because Apple is more of a design and fashion company rather than a technology company and they only have a few products that have to be designed and polished to perfection. Microsoft has Windows, Windows Server, Office, MS SQL, Sharepoint, Exchange Server, Azure, Phone 7... See Quora link for other explanations.
