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.

RE[2]: Its not the kernel

All the features you mentioned above could be done by Apple in just 2 years, and it would probably be done better. Microsoft with its huge resources could build up 1 OS in 2 year from scratch if they want to, but they don't. Anyway, the MS design really sucks in comparision with OSs like Apple, linux and Unix; who said that transparency and effects are more important to me than decent shortcut system that is even missing in vista!

Apple, and linux are better handled when working with because everything works with just one set of shortcuts that doesn't change from App to App. And the Graphics Dead Zones in Microsoft shows no respect for small screens, which would be consumed with spaces.

Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer are booth under developed and way much more old technologies, already available in linux. Check konqueror and its view profiles and tell me if windows Explorer does have something like it that will reduced the clutter of 6 opened windows.

MS effort is unfortunately too little too long! and I doubt it would be more interesting like the old days of 1995. And now I am working to replace all my networks to OSX and OSX server for the peace of mind from viruses and instabilities.
