799779 story Windows Is Dead – Long Live Midori? 695 Posted by timothy on Wednesday July 30, 2008 @12:21PM from the what-about-midori-linux? dept. parvenu74 writes "A story from Infoworld is suggesting that the days of Windows are numbered and that Microsoft is preparing a web-based operating system code-named Midori as a successor. Midori is reported to be an offshoot of Microsoft Research's Singularity OS, an all-managed code microkernel OS which leverages a technology called software isolated processes (SIPs) to overcome the traditional inter-thread communications issues of microkernel OSes."
