It seems to me that for maximum security of your bitcoin wallet a linux distro striped of everything not needed for running a bitcoin wallet might be a good solution.

As it would be a pain to have to start up the machine, wait for the block chain to update, and then manually type in the receiving address: I would imagine most people keeping most of their bitcoins on the dedicated machine and having a separate less secure wallet on their main machine for day to day transactions. Basically a bitcoin safe to compliment your bitcoin wallet.

I don't have the programing skill to make such a distro or enough bitcoins to need it atm but I though I would share the idea.

I doubt many people want to have separate machine running just for this. And it's meant to be your vault. You take your savings from there not more often than once in a month.

Variance is a bitch!

The idea is good. It's particularly appealing for people running bitcoin services.
