I had not heard of it until just now. I did read an interview on it that sounded pretty interesting. This OS is more focused on businesses though, not personal users. For the average personal user this OS would be a pain to setup. The interview I read was here:

Qubes OS: An Operating System Designed For Security : Approaches To System Security

The only unhackable OS is the one that you don't install.

^ This.

Security is much more dependent on the individuals managing it than the software they implement.

You can tighten it up as much as you like, but if your password is 'password' then you're gonna get hacked.

I remember when Apple said IOS was unhackable, I remember when Sony said the Playstation was unhackable. It's all crap, they are all hackable.

Somwhere along the line it's a Scam. Even NASA has been hacked. What ever anyoneone does to make their system unhackable there is always some clever person who can hack. They usually do it in a few Hours if they want to.

I know the perfect OS that you can never hack into; any OS. What's the secret? Don't plug it in for internet

Mentioning this to an OS literally will make hackers prove wrong.

I am sure to download it and see what it is all about when it comes into Alpha. I should be testing it now and reporting bugs but I really do not have time for that.

Any way it is the project of Joanna Rutkowska from Invisible things. She is very respected in the security community.

She understands security very well and this OS is like no other out there. She gets credit from me for that. Of course if one runs some server like linux distro with no X as some very experienced individuals do than there is no need for this.

I'm going to pop it in VMWare and check that out. Wonder how it'll look.
