View Thread: The Singularity Project (with results)
  • LiquidBoy

    I found a nice Singularity paper that actually goes into some performance statistics..

    Shows across the board Cycle reductions at the OS level for many systems within the SinguarlityOS.

    I really want to see this Midori project's managed SingularityOS work (with dev platform) ... It really does sound exciting...
