Is there such thing as an impenetrable OS?

Is there any operating system except Sun Microsystems' Trusted Solaris that guarantees that you cannot get a virus or Trojan horse, or is defaced and/or injected as a Web server with a worm?
Not that I'm aware of. There's OpenBSD, and NetWare is pretty darn solid, but I certainly wouldn't put my money on any that claim to be 100% secure.
