Microsoft It seems like Microsoft Research is really busy these days with research operating systems. We had Singularity, a microkernel operating system written in managed code, and late last week we were acquainted with Barrelfish, a "multikernel" system which treats a multicore system as a network of independent cores, using ideas from distributed systems. Now, we have a third contestant, and it's called Helios.

>>System7 unix? Do you mean System V Release 4 (SVR4)? Or UNIX V7?

Both of course as V7 is a direct ancestor of SVR4 (via System III and 32/V)

Like the way I'm a direct descendant of both my father and my great grandfather.
