Secure IT Foundation

Archive for the ‘PrentOS’ Category

We have come to the end of the project, Secure IT Foundation. Our goal has been to make home computers more secure, primarily focusing on Windows. Despite some intense lobbying and publicising the cause, we have to admit defeat. Computer manufacturers only care about shifting boxes, computer repair shops only care about how many insecure Windows reinstalls they can do and how many copies of useless anti virus they can sell. Security for all cannot happen using the current Windows model, regardless of form factor.

Our focus is moving over to PrentOS, our vision of a secure OS for home use. You supply the hardware, we supply the software and install it for free at an OS party… The second beta of PrentOS is due to be completed by the end of the summer and many thanks to our current beta testers for putting up with all those errors!

This site will stay online for now, but will no longer be updated. So long and thanks for all the fish.

September 2010 we said it was time for a brand new start to computing, well it is starting to take shape…

PrentOS is the official public name for the project to develop a new open source licensed operating system with the goal of making a simple, secure computer.

Why PrentOS? Simple really, as it PrentOS is being developed primarily by Brad Prent, the owner of SecurityBrad and Brads Computer Service Station

For now, we have parked the domains www.prentos.com and www.prentos.org while we work on producing the Alpha version and we aim to launch limited public testing via the shop in Rotterdam by the end of 2011.
