Such a good news for me, a student learning information security. 
However, I have a doubt, why does Debian enable PIE by default, other 
than stack protector and FORTIFY_SOURCE that are already enabled by 
default in the Ubuntu distribution?

I think stack protector(FORTIFY_SOURCE) has less overhead than PIE.
