comment Why do some people think Linux is more secure than Windows?
Saying that Linux is definitively more secure than Windows to me would seem bias. If you take a vanilla Linux distro and a vanilla Windows machine and exposed them to attackers they would both be exploited. They can both be hardened to different degrees as well. The OSes also have different architectures. It would be hard to identify one single feature that makes Linux "more secure" than windows... If anything the perception that Linux is more secure comes from the fact that Windows is more targeted by attackers again as state by Adnan in his answer.

Doesn't seem like a duplicate of that question to me... since there are specific questions relating to the difference between Linux and Windows.

Do you classify spy applications as only background apps that are accessing microphone, camera, and gps/location services? If that is the only restriction it's should probably be possible.

comment Writing Android Exploits
like @tylerl said at the core Android is a stripped down linux kernel with a different middleware layer. I don't know of a be all end all guide. Looking into ARM assembly and exploits for Linux on ARM should get you headed in the right direction though even though the hardware varies most devices run on ARM. There are projects that are working towards running android on x86 too so that might also be something to keep in mind.
