BeOS & Derivatives "Starting with hrev45522, address space layout randomization (ASLR) and data execution prevention (DEP) are available in Haiku. These two features, which have actually become a standard in any modern OS, make it much harder to exploit any vulnerability that may be present in an application running on Haiku, thus generally improving system security."

Modded up because it's true.

Windows 7 ASLR has issues too last I checked (though 8 is supposedly better). But yes, Linux exploit mitigation is AFAIK kind of weak, especially on x86-32.
