Open Source OS from Microsoft Research

BdotNetStudent User Group organized a Hands-On-Session in the Microsoft building in Bangalore on September 28th 2008. The topic of the session was "Singularity - Open Source OS from MS Research".I have come across a lot of people who are ready to debate when they hear Open Source and Microsoft! They even start comparing linux and windows! Now lets see what "singularity" does being a Open Source Operating System from Microsoft Research.

From wikipedia :
"Singularity is an experimental operating system being built by Microsoft Research since 2003. It is intended as a highly-dependable OS in which the kernel, device drivers, and applications are all written in managed code."

Sattvik Chakravarthy , Microsoft Student Partner from RNSIT was the speaker for the Hands-On-Session, here are his Presentation Slides :
