Microsoft Drawbridge Research Project

Drawbridge is an application-virtualization project developed by Microsoft researchers which can "show up inside a future Windows version -- or maybe even as underlying technology enabling Microsoft to better run existing Windows apps (virtually) on mobile devices" (as described by Mary Jo Folley : )
Drawbridge combines two core technologies:
First, a picoprocess, which is a process-based isolation container with a minimal kernel API surface.
Second, a library OS, which is a version of Windows enlightened to run efficiently within a picoprocess.
