The project will allow personnel to access multiple, classified networks from a single device, replacing the current practice of having separate machines for 'restricted' and 'secret' domains.

The ongoing MS licensing dilemma for multi-user terminal providers (such as Ncomputing) took a new turn in January with written indication from MS that license terms do not permit multiple users under desktop systems (ie XP Pro).
Given the lackluster inroads Vista has made it is is also notable that it is Vista which is specifically referred to.
Still, it would seem with major expansion of Linux and other avenues that Microsoft somehow coming to terms with this is in their best interest. It's not often a major footprint is there for the taking (ie requiring just formulating license terms) especially as the market looks to Microsoft to capitalize and develop new markets.
Probably the first would be in the terminal server/winserver implementation but XP Pro would start a flood.
