However doing development on systems running Linux was always seen to be a safe bet, simply because Linux has in the past been far more stable than Windows.

The author clearly has no idea what he's talking about. There are many reasons why one would choose Linux (or Windows) for development. Stability is very rarely one of them (i.e. they're both generally stable enough and have been for a long time).
