is interesting and Quamranet
is making smart moves
but I think what Qumranet might be doing with it may be more interesting. According to the News.com article, less than a dozen out of their 30 or so engineers are working on KVM so what could the rest be working on? My guess is on building a secure bedrock for desktop OS, specifically Vista, capable of securing PCs without drowning users with endless confirmation dialogs by monitoring software activities as well as that of the users then taking smart actions with optional external security policy service, a very ambitious yet rewarding goal although the idea of running Vista on top of KVM-enabled Linux is rather amusing.
