> Juno Announces Virtual Supercomputer Project
The indicated press release (http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/010201/ny_juno_on.html)
says "Subscribers to Juno's free basic service may ultimately be required
to make their unused computing power available to the project as a
condition for using that service." A message on the politech list
(www.politechbot.com), says "According to Juno's new service agreement,
Juno's subscribers `agree' to let Juno download, upload and run software
from their PCs, and may be required `to leave' their computers `on at all
Any of you feel comfortable enough with current popular OSes to believe
that Juno can really protect their subscribers from Juno's mistakes, Juno's
commercial customer's mistakes, and hackers?
Extropians should consider visiting erights.org or eros-os.org for views of
a project that is attempting to build a secure enough platform that this
would be reasonably safe.
