fine, but "we cannot fix your OS" is still bullshit because that way you 
accuse the operating system to be broken while in fact software not 
running with ASLR is the broken piece - that's not a matter of who and 
with how many ressources would fix it - it's just about the fact that a 
operating system wich requires PIE/PIC don't need to be fixed
