From the referenced article:

For example, [Microsoft's] entire NX effort, the reliance on AMD64 PAE NX, is a mockery of what is possible because it is only protecting some parts of the address space so buffer overflows are still possible.


Anyone know where to find a technical [non-marketing] description of what M$ is / is not doing with NX support? On second thought, maybe the insistence on non-marketing is expecting too much :-).
