Re: This seems a very level-headed and straight forward discussion

In the last week or so we've discovered that the x86 chips aren't (or weren't for a long time) actually as hard as we'd hoped, so depending on what you mean by "truly" hardened I'd say that no OS running on commodity hardware can be truly hardened.

That doesn't mean we can't do a lot better than several popular OSes currently do.
