Project Trading System V is the beginning of a software environment assisting traders and investors. Currently it is more or less the pure online centric Linux distribution gOS that itself is based on a Debian Linux system installed into VMware. Instead of KDE or Gnome gOS has as its standard user interface Enlightenment. Distro gOS is still in an early development phase, but it already shows the early signs of how an SAS inspired system could look and how online investors could profit off SAS.
You will need the VMware virtualization software, i.e. at least the VMware Player, which is free, for running Trading System V. VMware virtualization will give you a virtual computer in your real hardware PC. This virtual software PC is completely isolated from the host OS and hardware, and programs running inside it can't recognize the outer machine. Host and guest are "firewalled" against potential malicious software of the companion.
In some way online trading is the precursor of SAS. Traders need up to date price data and timely execution. Additionally they want the latest software. Even automatic trading systems can be made much more reliable if orders are held on the server of your broker. One reason is trade execution speed, another one the simple fact that one (weak) link in the chain - your local computer - is eliminated.
