    This is sooooo cool! I'm sending the info to our teeny Linux website.

    This is a very interesting concept technologically, but I don't know how practical it is. Call me old school, but I firmly believe personal and work should be physically separated on different machines. This also means mentally separating the tasks. When I'm working I'm focused on work and nothing else. The same goes for personal tasks. I'm curious why they chose to go with VMs. It seems the overhead of VMs wouldn't be worth it. I'm curious if they were to use Linux containers how it would be different in performance and complexity.

      Yeah but to be able to separate things like banking, personal business and browsing for fun is a very powerful idea.

        I don't know if it is that powerful. It's interesting for sure, but since it is already using Linux the vast majority of consumer facing malware is irrelevant. Even the default security policies of most distros don't put the user at risk for these type of concerns.

        You could accomplish the same security protection by having multiple users for each task group. Basically what this is adding is the ability to share between users easily and be able to have work from one user open in the same workspace as another. That's neat, but I don't agree with it from a productivity perspective. Having work open from multiple contexts at the same time is just not a good idea.
