.NET (dotGNU too) "Previously, we have presented one of the two opensource licensed projects related to creating a C# kernel. Now it's the time to complete the set by rightfully presenting SharpOS, an effort to build a GPL version 3 + runtime exception licensed system, around a C# kernel of their own design. It is my pleasure and priviledge to host a set of questions and answers from four active developers of SharpOS, that is William Lahti, Bruce Markham, Mircea - Cristian Racasan and Sander van Rossen in order to get some insight into what they are doing with SharpOS, their goals, their different design and inspiration."

To my understanding, buffer overflows and memory leaks are only a fraction of the sources of instability in modern kernels, while synchronization issues in highly parallel asynchronous environment and general complexity problems are probably more significant and harder to solve. Managed languages don't help with the latter, so it's not a silver bullet.
