Microsoft Microsoft Research continues to evolve its Gazelle concept. "In this paper, we present ServiceOS, a platform that tightly integrates a multi-principal browsing architecture with the underlying OS. ServiceOS provides a centralized, fine-grained resource access control model, and uses recursive web-oriented algorithms for sharing system resources. ServiceOS also introduces new abstractions that allow a web service to explicitly allocate and manage resources for any helper services they embed (e.g., via iframes). A key challenge that ServiceOS solves is managing resources in the face of complex web service composition."

After reading through the summary three times I learned absolutely nothing.

Yeah, a lot of buzzwords and technobabble in that summary. Example:

ServiceOS provides a centralized, fine-grained resource access control model, and uses recursive web-oriented algorithms for sharing system resources.


While all of that may be technically true, it's made to sound more revolutionary than it actually is. I prefer my technobabble in Star Trek form, thank you very much.

Just for you:

ServiceOS is a positronic net control interface which uses temporal modulating comm's channels for sharing collective nodes.

Of course you're not going to know anything if you don't read the damn document:

http://research.microsoft.com/pubs/131540/serviceos.pdf

All the information is there in black and white; just because you're too lazy to read the attached pdf file which is linked off the article doesn't make the idea a buzzword littered waste of time.
