It's extremely difficult to have a positive conversation about what you are doing when there are so many cynics waiting to knock you down.


Normally, I'd agree with you. But that positive conversation can't take place here. If there are kernel security experts here, they don't have access to their product and can't evaluate their claims. If there are not kernel security experts here, their product hasn't earned the respect of the experts elsewhere. Its not really worth discussing the potential security benefits of an untrusted, untestable system. So, people end up focusing on the crazy claims of espionage and international three letter acronym intrigue that make this seem as shady as a back alley kidney transplant.

I've read white papers of products I already use and pay for that I know are full of sh*t and don't do half the things as well as they claim. The real important information about a product comes from independent third parties that test and use the systems.
