    I don't think you'll ever create a perfectly secure OS, regardless of the developer, so I applaud this, in theory it sounds like a very good idea.

    I like the sound of this, when can we get it for desktops?

    This could be very useful, provided the linux distro knows about such details as networks and anti-virus updates.

    Well... the Anti-Virus software/Firewall has to actually be good for this to be worth any consideration..

    I'm in agreement on the above points about having the right AV/AS Firewall software. I also like that ability of not allowing windows onto the network until it passes its security checkup.

    Next step : Embedded Linux Firewall.


    Would be cool with those two ideas together.

    Any effects on people becoming hyperactive when using this new HyperCore system?

    That's bizarre.
    I thought about something like this and now its a reality.
    I'm just wondering if I read an old press-release and didn't actually think of it on my own or if its a coincidence. :)

    Sounds cool though, if done right. :)

    Well. Virtualization is becoming more and more mainstream it seems. Soon everything will be virtualized. I would love to be able to switch operating systems on the run as well (not like VMWare Workstation, but more like done from EFI/Hardware). When you power on the PC you get a menu presenting the running operating systems (with virtualization you never power down an OS, it's state is preservered on disk) and you just get right into the action.

    Only the future knows.

    Soon all PC's will be empty and all hardware will be far away.

    The PC will have the strict necessary to boot and connect to the main machine :p
