Windows is insecure because it doesn't have a lean Micro Kernel

Having a bloated macro kernel with loads of legacy cruft like in Windows is a major reason why it is so hard to make and keep secure.

The Android model looked promising initially, but is seriously compromised by Google conflicts of interests, sloppy coarse permissions, lack of roles and lack of user choice/limits on permissions. Microsoft has also further compromised the security of Windows leading up to and in Windows 10 with it's own conflicts of interest!
