The title covers the core question, but there's a lot of clarification necessary:
- I assume AIs do not get the benefit of Hot Sim, because (1) no +1 benefit to Initiative, (2) no +2 to Matrix tests is explicitly mentioned, while (3) a +3 to Matrix perception is explicitly mentioned. Could a decking AI benefit from either the protections of Cold Sim or the benefits of Hot Sim?
- I assume that the Inherent programs would not be transferable between the AI and its 'deck, correct? All purchased programs should work whether using the 'deck or hacking as itself, though, right?
