Microsoft MSDN's Channel 9 has two videos in their 'Going Deep' series which dive, well, deeper into Singularity, the operating system in development at Microsoft's research department. The first of the two is about, among other things, Software Isolated Processes (SIPs). The second of the two actually shows Singularity in action.

It is nice to see that MS is doing some real research. But the OS didn't impress me to much, they didn't came up with something new or exciting, just ordinary micro kernel. And their language of choice.. well.. horid.. plain old C (and yes I know C# and what managed code is). What whould realy be interesting is if they did an OS not in an imperative language, but in functional, e.g. by incoporating MS other R&D project like F#.
