    Cosmos - New OS on the market

    Has anyone seen/read about this yet?

    http://blogs.zdnet.com/microsoft/?p=1162&tag=nl.e539

    an Open Source C# based operating system (not written by Microsoft, but rather a former employee of Microsoft) that can run on things like the Wii, OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) and iPhone?!? This sounds really interesting...

    Cosmos - C# Open Source Managed Operating System

    pretty creative.

    Also, they mention something that Microsoft Research Division has been working on that I have not heard a single thing about till now:

    Singularity:

    Both look like interesting projects. There is also http://www.sharpos.org.

    Lookey-lookey, speaking of Singularity, apparently MS just released it as open source under an academic license.

    First learned of this today on Slashdot. http://slashdot.org/articles/08/03/05/1528227.shtml
