Cornell's Nexus Operating System

I hold out hope for this project: Cornell University's Nexus Operating System. There are only a few publications thus far, but the ideas are very intriguing: microkernel, trustworthy computing via TPMs (they're cheap and pervasive), "active attestation" and labeling, etc.

And it's funded by the National Science Foundation. I hope to see more from Dr. Fred Schneider and company.
