And it makes the Linux kernel look more secure than it actually is, which is another form of lying by omission.
I just have to respond to this one thing. The kernel announcements and general discussions have been pretty open about the belief that it is _less_ secure than many people would like. Just the other day in a discussion about containers and namespaces, major kernel developers comment was that it wasn't worth the effort to increase security separation between containers because there will always be local root exploits that will break separation.
The kernel developers do not appear to be trying to claim more security by omission, they are explicitly claiming less.
