Exactly, but put yourself in a hackers shoes. Your looking at a percentage of people who use a certain OS. 90% of computer users use Windows instead of Linux or Mac. If you wanted to infect and gather sensitive data on more people, you'd want to go for the Windows users, because more people use Windows than any other Operating System.
