The "why bother" isn't very clear...
... and usually that means other unspoken agendas are busy. There's a few things I just don't get about Native Client:
- If its security model is working on x86 instructions, how is that portable to non-x86 machines?
- Given how new the verifying-instructions approach is, how can one claim it is secure? It's not been sitting there getting attacked yet - who knows whether there is a glaring hole that the researchers hadn't thought of? Only time will tell.
