Midori (operating system)
|Company / developer||Microsoft Corporation|
|Working state||Currently under development|
|Supported 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 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 an entirely new security model that sandboxes applications for increased security. Microsoft has mapped out several possible migration paths from Windows to Midori.
In a possible connection with Microsoft's Oslo composite application initiative, the programming model will rely on metadata, with the goal of allowing the system to more reliably manage applications. There is also a possibility that Midori is Internet-based.
A new reference to Midori was found in a presentation shown during the OOPSLA 2012 conference in October 2012.
