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."

Yeah, I remember, Microsoft sued Lindows, but the case finally ended with Microsoft paying Lindows to change their name. They received several million dollars and only had to change their name! That looks like a win to me.
