Microsoft Builds a Simple OS
Microsoft may be in a position to replace Windows with its own new OS, after
all. Microsoft Research has a brand-new, stripped-down, ready-to-rock OS development
The new OS is designed from scratch to resist attacks such as buffer overflows
and actually checks code for stability and compatibility before it runs. It
all sounds great. But, then again, Microsoft will have to do something about
all that backward compatibility.
