digitalmars.D - [OT] Safe native code with C# in Microsoft's Midori OS

Hello,

Joe Duffy just published another Midori article, how they have 
written the OS in an extended version of C#, which started as 
part of the Singularity OS.

Interesting read, specially since many of the learned lessons are 
now coming to the standard version of C# and driving new features 
like .NET Native, CoreCLR and some of the already announced C# 7 
ones.

Also, maybe some learnings that could help improve D.

"I hate to say it, but doing great at all of these things is "table stakes." Back in the mid-2000s, we had to write everything by hand. Thankfully, these days you can get an awesome off-the-shelf optimizing compiler like LLVM that has most of these things already battle tested, ready to go, and ready for you to help improve." cough.
