Midori (operating system)
|Working state||Currently under development|
|Platforms||IA-32, x86-64, ARM|
|Kernel type||Microkernel (Language-based)|
Midori is the code name for a managed code operating system being developed by Microsoft with joint effort of Microsoft Research. It has been reported to be a possible commercial implementation of the Singularity operating system, a research project started in 2003 to build a highly-dependable operating system in which the kernel, device drivers, and applications are all written in managed code. It was designed for concurrency, and can run a program spread across multiple nodes at once. It also features a security model that sandboxes applications for increased security. Microsoft has mapped out several possible migration paths from Windows to Midori.
A new reference to Midori was found in a presentation shown during the OOPSLA 2012 conference in October 2012.
