Problem is, it doesn't. There are parts that aren't 100% emulated yet, and are very hard to trap... sorry that I can't divulge more than that, but it would be against commercial interest *grin*. VMX and the extensions are a good step, though.
Well, we also have Virtualization to thank. AMD Pacifica and Intel VT instruction sets mean that you can if you so desire, completely isolate different execution environments.
