Sounds like a safe bet to me too.

More generally though, Theo's very argument would also lead one to conclude not to develop operating systems and their applications. Yet he continues to develop OpenBSD. I applaud the effort to improve security, but at the same time recognize that if that was humanity's only priority we'd all still be huddled up in little caves with our heads stuck in the sand. We've made some progress by taking risks and doing imperfect things too.

Full disclosure: I'm not a big fan of virtualization, but do use DOSemu a bit.
