$100 Laptop Reinvents Computer Security

Unattributed, eSchool News, Oct 09, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

It's not the '$100 Laptop" any more, but we'll let that slide (all that relentless publicity has a price). The security innovation touted in this story is that "the $100 laptops will force any application to run in 'a walled garden' and limit the files it can access." This sounds to me a lot like 'trusted computing' and I wonder (in the back of my mind) how this will roll out.
