I agree it's not good to put all of your eggs in one basket. Look at the huge target society has developed that is Windows. No matter who the hackers may be, if we focus on using one single OS or software bundle, we are making their lives easier, and the target larger. There needs to be competing or at least different, friendly, options in OS and software. For a distribution that touts security and anonymity, they really dropped the ball. Zero-days are no joke. Diversity here will help by offering other, possibly more secure alternatives.

This also reminds me of a change they made in Android not too long ago where they randomized the place in memory where running applications were stored. Prior to that I think it was some standard location that allowed for easier exploitation.
