    IIRC, Gentoo ignores some kinds of security bugs so that the task
    remains manageable. Debian, in contrast, hasn't released a kernel
    update for its stable distribution since June (but unstable and even
    testing is in surprisingly good shape).

    Maybe the real vendor kernels are better. Without CVE-based bug
    tracking on their part, it is hard to tell, though. 8-)
