If you an instructor looking to add some sparkle to your Operating System class, this might be an interesting addition or extra credit project.  Of course BarrelFish is more advanced, but Singularity has a strong following and for the investigation of type safe programming or dependability, singularity is a great demo of what a research O/S should look like.  Discussions around why to do this kind of project can help prepare students to be your researchers.
