How does this affect users of a single operating system, do I still have critical levels of exposure to anyone outside my local network?

Yes.

Any device that has any requirement to enforce privileges (e.g. you buy or use software you get from other than writing it with your own fingers) has a SEVERE problem as a result of this.

I expect exploits using this have been around for quite some time among the TLAs, and now that it's "out" garden-variety hackers will be exploiting it -- and likely very soon.
