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.

It's more complicated than that on other OS's. The default memory split up in NT is that the first 2GB can be reserved for the kernel (forgive me if I botch this). This is largely meaningless until you want to have a 2.1GB process of your own. TMK there is a way to set NT down to using less, but very few people are concerned with using 2GB of RAM on a single process.

I don't really understand calling the kernel a process anyway.
