A non-Windows OS? Microsoft drops clues
...While Midori was in incubation, the Microsoft Research team working on the "Drawbridge" library OS
managed to support Midori as a host implementation
, alongside a number of other Microsoft operating-system platforms. (A library OS is is a form of virtualization that seeks to replace the need for a virtual machine to run software across disparate platforms.)
One of my contacts said Myerson's OS group is going to be determining which parts of Midori have a place in Microsoft's future operating-systems plans. Based on Duffy's post, it sounds like the M# piece of Midori will evolve throughout 2014, but it's not clear when and if it ultimately will be open-sourced.
