Re: This...

Hard & soft.

It's a hardware feature/flaw (depending on your point of view) optionally activated by the kernel (or hypervisor) and handled differently by different kernels - potentially with differing ramifications as a result... As far as I can tell so far.

A more comprehensive list of systems which enable it by default would have been nice. Not just the list of M$ systems which enable it (8.1 & X) but it does seem to be off by default on most Linux distros.
