Indeed, or FreeBSD. Debian can work with all three.
Not to mention GNOME/KDE/XFce/GNUStep, Firefox/Konqueror/Epiphany, Thunderbird/KMail/Evolution, .deb/.rpm, etc. There's no monoculture in "Linux" (except arguably glibc across Debian), so no single attack vector will work everywhere. We have security by diversity.
Interesting that they can get a single file to run on both Win32 and GNU/Linux, but not very important.
