MCMS 2002 Coolest Blogs

Hmm for some time i am using MCMS 2002 its a fine product but getting bit older day by day also a bit mature (just for completeness  ) . As when i start working on it i really look for sources to get info from (believe me there are not many though) but i found some excellennt blog and other sites which i still visit often . So here is the list
check it out
These are inclined towards SharePoint Portal Server & MCMS 2002         (This one is the coolest and must be visited )

Microsoft’s Other OS, code-named ‘Singularity’ built from scratch on Microsoft’s C#

Hey here is an intresting news that i happen to know … Its very tempting atleast to me that an organiztion
spending fair amount of money to doing reaserach for no immediate economic reason . I wish


Microsoft the  Research has developed a prototype of a microkernel operating system, code-named ‘Singularity.’ Its most surprising feature: It has nothing to do with Windows.


Contrary to popular opinion, Windows isn’t the only operating system in which Microsoft is investing.


The Microsoft Research team has built from scratch a 300,000-line, microkernel-based operating system (OS) that has no roots in Windows.

That OS, code-named "Singularity," is slowly but steadily gaining visibility. The Microsoft Research team behind the project recently posted to the Web a 44-page technical research report about Singularity.


Company officials discussed the project publicly at the June USENIX conference. And earlier this week, Microsoft’s Singularity effort got some attention on Slashdot.

"What would a software platform look like if it was designed from scratch with the primary goal of dependability?" reads the opening of the Microsoft research report. That was the question the Singularity team set out to answer two years ago.

"Singularity is not Windows. Every line of code was written from scratch," said Galen Hunt, a senior researcher with Microsoft Research who is helping to spearhead the Singularity project.

Hunt said Singularity is the largest cross-group project inside of Microsoft Research, involving about 35 researchers across the systems and networking, compiler, testing and other research teams.

Like all Microsoft Research projects, Singularity has no definitive commercialization trajectory. Microsoft could opt to commercialize it as is, embed elements of it in other products or simply rely on the learnings from the project to inform other efforts at the company.

Already, however, the Singularity work is generating ideas for the architectural team inside Microsoft’s Core Operating System Division (COSD), and the

Microsoft security team, Hunt said. COSD has been doing work to reduce dependencies among the different subsystems that comprise Windows. The security team has been wrestling with federated identity and distributed system challenges.

"We have an idea of how to minimize dependencies when writing an OS from scratch," Hunt said. "That’s a technology transfer idea."

Singularity also could, hypothetically, act as the host operating system for something like Microsoft BigTop. BigTop is the code-name for a still-unannounced internal Microsoft distributed-systems infrastructure project.

Ultimately, all or parts of Singularity would most likely find a place in the embedded OS space, the server OS market, or both, Hunt said.

Singularity also is a proof of concept regarding the viability of managed code.

Singularity is not the first OS written entirely in managed code, Hunt acknowledged. He bestowed that title on "Cedar," developed by Xerox PARC.

But the OS is currently written entirely in a combination of Microsoft’s C# programming language, as well as a derivative of C#, which the team is calling "Sing#." (Sing# is a derivative of Spec#, which is a derivative of C#.) The ultimate goal is to write the OS entirely in Sing#, Hunt said.  

While Singularity does rely on Microsoft’s C#, it is not making use of Microsoft’s Common Language Runtime (CLR) or the Java virtual machine. Instead, the team is relying on "Bartok," a Microsoft-Research-developed compiler and run-time environment.  

"We have developed a working kernel, as originally conceived," said Hunt. "Now we can build a lot of components on top of it."

Windows WorkFlow Foundation

Windows WorkFlow Foundation

Windows Workflow Foundation is the programming model, engine and tools for quickly building workflow-enabled applications on Windows. It consists of a Microsoft® WinFX® name space (System.Workflow), an in-process workflow engine, and designers for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. Windows Workflow Foundation is available (currently as Beta) for both client and server versions of Windows. Windows Workflow Foundation supports a wide range of scenarios including workflow within line-of-business applications, user interface page flow, document-centric workflow, human workflow, composite workflow for service-oriented applications, business rule-driven workflow and workflow for systems management.

Heart Of Darkness

Written as the memory of one man, Conrad’s Heart of Darkness reads like a journey through one’s nightmare.  So many interesting but minor characters and scenes dart across the pages that it is difficult to name all of Conrad’s possible themes.  However, two main themes prevail: journey and truth.
Heart of Darkness is based on Conrad’s firsthand experience of the Congo region of West Africa. Conrad was actually sent up the Congo River to an inner station to rescue a company agent—not named Kurtz but Georges-Antoine Klein—who died a few days later aboard ship. The story is told in the words of Charlie Marlow, a seaman, and filtered through the thoughts of an unidentified listening narrator. It is on one level about a voyage into the heart of the Belgian Congo, and on another about the journey into the soul of man. In 1902, Heart of Darkness was published in a separate volume along with two other stories by Conrad. Many critics consider the book a literary bridge between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and a forerunner both of modern literary techniques and approaches to the theme of the ambiguous nature of truth, evil, and morality. By presenting the reader with a clearly unreliable narrator whose interpretation of events is often open to question, Conrad forces the reader to take an active part in the story’s construction and to see and feel its events for him—or herself
