Comment Re:Making Linux Work (Score 1) 440

If you could make it so that the majority of windows applications ran without resistance, I think that almost no boot time could make Linux revolutionary. Until then, I think you're wasting man hours on the wrong problem.

This is part of the reason MS is in a mess right now, the "majority" of Windows applications are poorly programmed to the point that they need "administrator" access to the system to perform trivial tasks. Thus the problem with Vista's UAC and why it is very difficult for MS to implement good security. The only way to run the majority of Windows applications securely and reliably is through a VM, but then you lose out on efficiency...
