Yes…I did say something to this effect at my Socal Linux Expo presentation.
Under the version 10 release, AppArmor — which Haegar [sic] called a “prophylactic for your applications” — will create an application profile of standard commands and files based on what the application is supposed to do.
Back when the quote was still in context, I think it was couched with some apology for the comparison. It’s still really the best analogy available. AppArmor is very cool stuff.
I restate that I do not know whether Novell plans on a public beta for v10 of our enterprise Linux desktop. When asked about whether the next desktop’s were available in beta, I explained that they were not, but that the pure open source SUSE Linux 10.1 code was publicly available. I conjectured that if a public beta of enterprise desktop were to happen, it would be around or after Novell BrainShare in March. More fool me. Never postulate when there are press people about.
The one saving grace is that the reporter was wrong on other important details…such as what city she was in. The dateline claims San Diego.

SAN DIEGO — Novell plans to release a beta for its Linux Desktop 10
We’ll see if I still have a job next week.
