Re: another take on hackers and painters

The difference between this work and Matthew's is, I believe, that 
Matthew is interested in providing not just the API of the operating 
system, but also the protections between processes. His research goal 
is to figure out how to provide those protections, but still allowing 
multiple processes to share data directly, without having to use 
something like RPC or RMI.
