Okay, then switch to PowerPC, Alpha, or any of the other 8 Debian platforms, where *zero* of the x86 ELF binaries and buffer overflow exploits will run. Honeypots running Linux on Sparc with multiple known vulnerabilities have had years of uncompromised uptime.
Again, security in diversity. No proprietary alternative comes anywhere near us.
