OSNews, Generic OSes "Newmium is currently developing iXRIOS, a high-speed, multi-processor, multi-operative, real-time operating system based on the workstation-server model. Users log on to a specific machine on which their operatives execute by default. They can request remote execution of their operatives via automatic and transparent load balancing of operatives and processors. Coupled with transparent load balancing, the iXRIOS system is loading only required services and drivers. iXRIOS is going to be restricted to commercial USA corporations. All government and non-profits are excluded from the program."

This "Newmium" place has apparently decided to blast everyone with PR releases in the last couple of months. I don't see anything earlier than July with a Google search.

Their products page seems pretty sparse too. Lots of great sounding stuff but almost all of it unreleased.

The line about no government or non-profits sounds really odd. How would they enforce it? Anyone can have a "company" or form a LLC, or buy their very own shell corp.

Maybe they just meant to exclude special deals.

The first thing I thought when I read that was "Oh, they want people with lots of money and not enough time to disassemble and read their code and evaluate it for security problems."
