welcome to the new world

to think back in the 70's folk were saying the same thing, and industry so far has been unable to do anything much in hardware to, as they say "protects memory bounds and isolates app execution" - Intel, go read up on CHERI and the UK's Digital Security by Design programme. They are already sharing real chip prototypes with folk that delivery this and block around 70% of on going software vulnerabilities from exploit while letting devs isolate app execution with pointer level isolation.
