| THE US DEPARTMENT of Homeland Security has flagged a critical

Yes, it's true, but just as in the recent (x)Ubuntu 5.x case, this was
*immediately* patched and could only ever be exploited only by a local user.
Compare that to Windows where Administrator password recovery is rather
trivial, given physical access to the machine. SuSE and even Palm O/S have
similar workarounds, so merely none makes the exception.
