C#, amongst other things it uses software isolated processes, which supposedly is faster.

Some parts of it are written in Sing#, which is an extension of Spec# and Spec# is an extension of C#. Sing# and was only created to build Singularity.

I don't have access to a windows machine to compile this on until next week, I don't suppose anyone could upload a ISO/disk image for Parallells or Qemu?

Edit: Also, waiting for first GNU/Singularity distro.

I have compiled it with all the tools/drivers/etc. I will upload it now. It's a bootable ISO image.
