Microsoft "Though most people don't know it, Microsoft has, not one, but two new operating systems that it is working on. The first, Vista, many people have heard of. Currently scheduled to ship just after the second coming of Christ, Vista has garnered most of the spotlight. However there is another OS lurking in the basement in Redmond and its name is Singularity (.pdf). So what does Singularity look like? A joke, at least at first glance. But taking a moment to analyze the situation I came up with some interesting observations which I will now share with you."

I agree this is a terrible article, but you have to remember that this is targeted at Apple type readers, and that this is the type of information that they are reading and absorbing and believing in on a daily basis.

The purpose of Singularity is to provide practical information about the performance and security implications, advantages and disadvantages, and new possibilities as the managed framework (.net) inevitably travels deeper into the OS core framework.

Those interested might like to take a look at projects like http://www.jnode.org/ and http://www.jdistro.com/ - these are OS projects targeting java.
