Again, that is not really a fair or accurate question.  I would assert
that distros specifically targeted at certain segments of the market
would do better in that respect.  If you have a distro that is targeted
at firewall applications, it won't be affected by things like the
problems that occur with X, Gnome, and KDE.  OTOH, anything target at
the desktop/workstation market would include a great many more packages
and probably have more security issues.  Even those statements are very
broad and I'm sure you could find exceptions.

I should have specified that I meant general purpose OSes...
