OSNews, Generic OSes "An increasing number of machines are equipped with hardware that can be used to support trustworthy computing. Trustworthy computing enables applications to make strong assurances about their behavior. Existing operating systems do not provide the right execution environment for trustworthy computing, and so are unable to fully exploit this emerging opportunity. The Nexus is a new operating system for trustworthy computing. Its microkernel architecture greatly reduces the size of the trusted computing base (TCB) by moving functionality out of the kernel."

"The Nexus enables interesting new applications. Applications we have built on top of the Nexus include:

* Media player application that enables rights-holders to define flexible, maintainable access control policies where protected media can be played by any media player that matches a set of properties.
* Spam-free e-mail system that defeats spam by enabling e-mail senders to mark messages as having been typed in by a human, which clearly distinguishes such messages from those that have been generated automatically..."

Very nice for corporate/government environments.
