highly secure virtual machine
I was thinking it would be nice to install OpenBSD and install some virtual machine software, and have several different operating systems to choose from. Then I could run the OS of my choice and if there was a problem(security), complete reversion back to an old copy of an OS would be trivial.
I looked at Xen, it seemed interesting to try the hypervisor route, with OpenBSD if possible as the basic dom0 operating system. However I'd like to play games and such, in Windows too (I don't like WINE or Cedega for games. Just Winders. Thats what it does best.). I wonder if there would be a problem with getting the nvidia drivers installed. It seems likely there would be, I don't know if the graphics hardware is emulated or what.
I was wondering if there is a highly secure virtual machine option so that I could run my windows, play games, use Linux or any other OS, (perhaps another OpenBSD) for browsing the net. not worry about getting 'sploited. Back up from an earlier copy of the OS if I am.
This is a nice daydream, but is it possible? I've got a quad core q6600, 4 gigs of ram, 500 gig SATA 3.0, so I think I have the hardware for this. I've got an Nvidia Geforce 8800gt for the games.
