Microsoft Microsoft has released an initial release of version 2.0 of the Singularity operating system (research development kit, as it likes to call it). Singularity is a microkernel research operating system, where the kernel, drivers, and applications are all written in managed code. Singularity is released under a shared source academic license, and you can do whatever you want with it, except making money (simply put).

Hi circlomanen, I'm a developer on the Singularity RDK - if you're not getting a command prompt at bootup, it's likely that the current release has problems starting up on the specific virtual machine software that you're using. I invite you to submit a bug with details of your configuration at http://www.codeplex.com/singularity/WorkItem/List.aspx so that we can investigate this. We want everyone to be able to try out Singularity.
