This is somewhat untrue. While smtp or http services can be exploitable, there are so many others such has openssh, openssl, ptrace, rpc, ect has had recent exploits which is just about used on every linux machine. So just because you don't use linux for webhosting doesn't make your machine anymore safer. Easiest way to secure your machine is don't run services you don't need. There is a lot more NT machines connected to the internet then you realize, they probably make up 65-70% of the net.
