Well, Musk is always trying to improve the overall human condition. He was going to get to the overpopulation and baseline-intelligence issues eventually!

I'm wondering if, in this day and age of multiprocessing chips, you shouldn't just have an entire core dedicated to running the OS with its own exclusive on-chip memory for OS code and data, while the user-space companion cores completely lack even the transistors for privileged execution. Save on all the privilege-level-managing logic and all??
"I think the article ratings were removed due to abuse. There were groups of readers who would down rate anything by certain authors without reading them."
Also, I got the impression that a lot of people were rating the /topic/ of the articles rather than the article itself. So an article about some government/corporate idiocy would get a lot of down votes irrespective of how good it was in response to people's opinions on the idiocy itself.
Yes, non-Telstra user here who gets full speed on a 25/5 most of the time (peak evening TV-streaming time sees slow downs of noticeable-but-not-unconsionable levels, which I am confident to put on the upstream pipework rather than my last mile of fibre (my area was one of the last already locked into FTTP before cancellation)).
Not sure how this will 'help' the NBN since the last-mile is not where the massive congestion is anyway.
(Well unless you bought into the "Wireless-Broadband speed = Wired-Broadband speed because the both contain the word 'Broadband" misconception' and are struggling with sharing the limited airwaves with the other thousands of schmucks (not to mention the many thousands more who have a legit need for wireless comms), and I doubt this will help there either since it is just the same limited-resource-distribution problem in a different frequency band!)
China handled a massive corruption problem in Laoning Province a few decades back by busing in a bunch of police from 3 provinces away to make sure they were outside the local corruptives' sphere of influence. I assume States Rights would stop that happening in the US, though.
