Slackware, Slax Slackware 11.0 contains the 2.4.33.3 Linux kernel (default), 2.6.17.13 in /extra and 2.6.18 in the /testing directory. This Slackware version is by far the most cutting edge ever released, it includes KDE version 3.5.4 (including the Amarok media player), XFCE 4.2.3.2, the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird, plus SeaMonkey 1.0.5 (replacing the Mozilla suite). It also includes glibc-2.3.6, gcc-3.4.6, X11R6.9.0 from X.Org, and more.

PHP is broken by design, so why bother? ;) More seriously, if text relocations are that bad, why are they used in PHP default builds?

About the release of security updates, the article you link to states that "Trustix Secure Linux" scores very low too. The way the scores are computed isn't explained, what does a score of "76" or "32" means? This looks like bad journalism, not security auditing.
