Microsoft is mum about the Midori incubation project

Microsoft is pursuing a different type of operating system, which goes by the name of Midori - and it's not the next version of Windows.

Midori has received a great deal of attention in recent days but Microsoft has refused to say anything about Midori beyond confirming it's an "incubation project" within the company.

Midori is related to Singularity, a research project that dates back to 2003 and looks at how to architect an operating system from the ground up, considering the past of computing and where things are headed in terms of parallelism and cloud computing.

Whereas Singularity was a research effort firmly confined to a small team of researchers inside Microsoft's in-house labs, Midori is an effort to see if there is something commercially viable that could come out of it.
