Cosmos: An open-source .Net-based microkernel OS is born
Move over, Microsoft Singularity. Theres another microkernel, .Net-based operating system in town. And this ones available under an open-source license.
Known as Cosmos, the new, independently developed operating system (OS) is the brain child of former Microsoft Developer and Platform Evangelism team member Chad Kudzu Hower. Unlike Singularity version one of which Microsoft released last year (and only to university researchers and academics) Cosmos is available to anyone, Hower said. The developers released Milestone 1 of Cosmos at the very end of January.
