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."

What a silly thing to release [?].
How the hell should any reasonably thinking human being trust anything, that is totally closed-source, pretends to be the "most secure" one, but - in the same time - starts with this "security through obscurity" model and hides everything from *the most demanding and security-conscious* user base, which is non-profit, OSS, and wise individuals/hackers, who likes to tinker with things ... ?
To me it sounds like another "give us all your money and you'll get that warm, fuzzy feeling of being secure" thing.
Well, security is not a product, but a process in a first place. You won't get it just by buying X or Y.
