Hi Ben,

I don't feel it the same way. It was exactly the opposite decided to 
loosen all security measures to lighten our kernels. For providing an 
hardened kernel you need also to maintain rules and ways to ensure your 
system is safe. We don't have the staff and time to do so. If the 
community do it and somebody might step up we might consider it. But of 
now my answer is simply no.

kind regards

Your major competitor is basically Sabayon (Manjaro does for Arch what Sabayon does for Gentoo) and they have started incoporating the "hardened gentoo kernal" into their distributions; everything already installed, users don't have to go on any "adventures in computer science". In todays world the majority of people are going to gravitate towards what is secure, hardened and ready to use.
