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.

First, plain old microkernel? Show me a viable microkernel operating system that really functions like a microkernel OS should--with all device drivers in userspace and only the VM service in the kernel.

Well quite. The problem is a microkernel seems like a great idea, and then inevitable compromises are made over things like performance and you end up coming to the same conclusions everyone else has for the past twenty or thirty years.

Why just one and not more micro kernels for critical areas?

with multicore why not just have one core be a kernel and then use the other 1,3, 31 for user-level threads? should prevent latency since no switching right?
