So, MS Research finally published Singularity with full sources and build environment. Build process and booting from CD is easy and works flawlessly on Virtual PC (didn't manage to get it to work under VMware). Who'll be the first to run unsafe code in there?

Let me get everything I need off this box and I'll try it.
I'm silly that way

Define "unsafe" in this context.

Compiling Singularity is touchy.
-Unzip it to the root directory of C:\
-Rename the Singularity folder to any thing NO more complex than the old DOS 8.3 convention: no spaces, no -(hyphen), no special characters.
-If you fail a compilation project, either clean all the garbage or or install a fresh copy: intermediate files from previous failed compilations screw up new attempts at compiling the Distro.

I didn't have any problems in folder like D:\code\singularity\

@disavowed:
Well, "unsafe" as any code that normally wouldn't be allowed to run in Singularity environment (i.e., code that doesn't pass some of the verification steps or is completely unmanaged). I may be wrong though, didn't have time to read how it all works in details.

Likewise... I was trying to get you to read through it for me and summarize it
