OSNews, Generic OSes "Joanna Rutkowska, a security researcher known for her work on virtualization security and low-level rootkits, has released a new open-source operating system meant to provide isolation of the OS's components for better security. The OS, called Qubes, is based on Xen, X and Linux and is in a basic, alpha stage right now. Qubes relies on virtualization to separate applications running on the OS and also places many of the system-level components in sandboxes to prevent them from affecting each other."

How similar is this to Solaris Trusted Zones? I played with them briefly but am not a security expert. I think this stuff is cool, but I trust myself completely, at least in unix.
