Forget Windows: Midori is coming
MICROSOFT is working on a new generation of operating systems called Cloud-Based Operating System and rumours are there that MIDORI will be their first such operating system, which will replace Windows fully from computer map.
What’s the difference?
MIDORI is an offshoot of Microsoft Research’s Singularity operating system. MIDORI is designed to run directly on native hardware(x86, x64, ARM), will be hosted on Windows Hyper-V hypervisor, or even be hosted by a Windows process.
MIDORI can be also seen as MICROSOFT’s answer to the competitors who are applying “Virtualization” as a mean to solve issues within contemporary computing. The main idea behind MIDORI is to develop a lightweight portable OS which can be mated easily to lots of various applications.
Importance of Midori:
The new operating system will solve the trend of installing different applications on a single computer by the concept of virtualizing. This will solve problems such as widespread security vulnerabilities, unexpected interactions among different applications, failures caused by errant extensions, plugins ,drivers and many more.
