New Open-Source OS Will Feature 'Disposable' Virtual Machines

,----[ Quote ]
| Invisible Things Lab is creating these 
| lightweight, throwaway VMs that work with 
| traditional virtual machines in Qubes, the 
| open-source, Xen-based OS it plans to 
| release in beta later this summer. Qubes 
| was architected to minimize the attack 
| surface in the VM environment.

YlmF OS - Ni Hao! 

,----[ Quote ]
| YlmF is a refreshing product. It's not a 
| revolution, though. There have been other 
| such projects in the past, including 
| Lindows, Xandros and other cross-platform 
| solutions, aimed at incorporating the best 
| of both worlds and offering the user an 
| optimal, blended experience, with 
| familiarity and simplicity of Windows and 
| the robustness and usefulness of Linux. 
| Some have worked, some have not. In most 
| cases, the fusion was not quite 
| successful, often because of hardware 
| issues and misguided expectations.
| 
| YlmF does not fall into this same trap and 
| elegantly escapes doom by being a solid, 
| robust distribution. Truth to be told, the 
| rite of passage is much easier than it was 
| years ago, when Linux desktop was still a 
| rough and unpredictable journey. 
| Nevertheless, YlmF achieves more by trying 
| less.
| 
| Compared to Ubuntu, YlmF is a relatively 
| humble fork. Much of the underlying parts 
| are the same. Some of the programs are 
| changed and you get codecs; other than 
| that, YlmF keeps it simple. The only big, 
| radical change is the user interface, 
| which is exactly the aim of this 
| distribution. Users have no idea what 
| kernel is or how it works. But they can 
| appreciate their desktop icons.

Linux distribution Ylmf OS looks just like Windows XP

,----[ Quote ]
| There is no shortage of Linux distros. For
| dozens, if not hundreds, of different
| tastes, there is a distribution made for
| you. And now, there is even a version of
| Linux that doesn't even look like Linux at
| all. It looks like Windows XP.
