Helios: Another Microsoft operating system project to watch

Helios: Another Microsoft operating system project to watch: "

Microsoft’s researchers are working on yet another operating-system research project which can trace its roots to the company’s Singularity project. This new operating system, known as Helios, is a heterogeneous multiprocessing platform built around satellite kernels.

(The folks over at the blog sent me a pointer to Helios after I wrote last week about another Microsoft Research operating system project, codenamed “Barrelfish.” Without the link they provided, I wouldn’t have found information about Helios, as it isn’t listed on the active projects page for Microsoft Research. Microsoft researchers have written a 14-page paper on Helios, however, which is slated for publication in October.)

Singularity, in case you need a quick refresher, is a microkernel operating system and set of related tools and libraries that is developed completely in managed code. Singularity is not based on Windows; it was written from scratch as a proof-of-concept. Microsoft’s Midori incubation project is another effort which can trace its lineage to Singularity.
