    Jeez, this guy is not that smart. Should have patented his idea first, if it really was him making it.
    Well, he likely won't win, people invoking the bible now a-days just gets you the "crazy-man" judgement, and is quite likely true. I mean he is going up against a multi-billion dollar corporation, about an idea they've patented, and (contrary to what he has stated) have been able to turn on just fine.
    Maybe Jobs never replied because he knew this guy was nuts after the first bits of correspondence.

    Hell, maybe this guy has no idea of what he's talking about, but sent something that looked spectacular, it didn't work, but Intel just took the basic idea of virtualisation and ran with it.

    Also, I don't see how you can make anything virus-proof. I remember that the Athlon 64 processors were meant to be more secure, but you could still get viruses.
    Hell, errata in the CPUs themselves have been catching a little attention from people that are probably developing a proof-of-concept virus which capitalises upon that errata.
