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.

I believe MS had a little thing called Xenix, so I'm not sure what you define here as "cloning". Xenix was an extremely popular Unix variant (indeed, it was a true certified Unix, iirc) that MS sold to SCO very early on. Linux came long after Xenix, therefor calling the use of a Unix/Linux-like directory structure a "clone" of Linux is really inaccurate.

Sorry, this was meant as a reply to the next comment below...

Its shell is a unix/linux clone obscured by some modifications to look unique eg "dir" instead of "ls".
