OSNews, Generic OSes "Whonix is a project to build an operating system that will offer the maximum privacy and anonymity possible straight out of the box. Its creator, 'Adrelanos', says the aim is to make it as hard as possible for privacy-conscious users to make missteps when it comes to remaining anonymous. 'It also provides loads of documentation and possibilities for interested users to make it even more secure,' he says." We've already covered Whonix before.

Yea, I can't say that I see much benefit in the dual VMs personally, I doubt that I would have gone that approach.

Also one metric that I particularly have always found VMs to be lacking in was GUI performance. A top of the line system might remove GUI lag, but I can certainly feel it on my system. I wonder if one might do better running a virtual framebuffer in the VM running VNC?

It would have an interesting side benefit of allowing other computers on the network use the anonymous desktop session through VNC, not sure whether that's a good idea or not though.
