AFAIK Linux and Mac OS X do so by default.
At Windows either the admin has to force usage by registry or developers have
to use linker options /DYNAMICBASE and /NXCOMPAT to enable it using Microsoft
Linker since 8.00.50727.161 or the developers have to use Microsoft Linker
version 10.0 or later (and AFAIK never the less should use option /NXCOMPAT).
AFAIK Microsoft does not support ASLR with Windows XP. So tests with ASLR
enabled could be done only using Vista or Win7. But maybe I'm wrong.
