It is advance if you consider following aspects.

The Singularity which is available is using SIPs which are really cheap and they are running in ring 0 at the address space of kernel.

By using this particular RDK one will be able to use reliable systems and applications as well. SIPs are quite cheap and it was mentioned into previous post. SIPs did not tends to share memory or modify the code which they are having. Due to that we can have the reliability guarantees regarding the code which is running into SIP. Also we can the more properties of SIP at the time of compile as well as installation.
The RDK is available for download but you cannot consider as a open source. The source code is going to be distributed under Microsoft Research License.
