I don't think there are many host OS'es out there which e.g. only run  
signed applications. The fact is that for some purposes, none of the  
current OS'es "does its job correctly" in that sense. Just use the  
right tool for the job, I personally don't understand all this  
hostility against managed environments (except as a reaction against  
claims that they are always much better than unmanaged environments,  
but overdoing it in the other direction isn't going to get the  
discussion anywhere).
