SD Times - Microsoft Sees the Future as a Singularity

SD Times - Microsoft Sees the Future as a Singularity: "Despite two years of work already under his belt, Galen Hunt, senior researcher of Microsoft Research, estimates there are another four to five years of work to be done on Singularity, a completely new operating system with an emphasis on dependability instead of performance.
Microsoft last month published the first details of Singularity, but any advances made in the operating system won't appear in commercial products for some time -- and certainly not in Windows Vista due next year.
The Singularity project contains new languages and tools and a whole new architecture and operating system design. The Singularity OS is built around three key abstractions: a kernel, Software-Isolated Processes and channels. "
