Risk of Linux P2P vs. Windows P2P software


Is there any more risk for the Windows users than us even though where connecting to the same networks?

In legal terms of sharing copywrited files, how on earth could there be a difference in liability between windows and linux users? In terms of spyware/adware/malware, then a lot of the stuff floating around the networks probably wouldn't do much, if any damage to a linux machine because they'd mostly be written for Windows.
