Does Singularity conflict with existing OS?

Has anyone identified issues either downloading Singularity onto an existing OS (like Vista) or networking it with other OS (like Linux or UNIX)?

In the RDK release, Singularity doesn't run on top of Windows, it boots as its own native operating system, so which OS you run is irrelevant as long as it can run the build tools (which are specific to Windows, but Singularity has been built successfully on XP, Vista, and Server). It has a standard TCP/IP network stack and so will network with any OS supporting TCP/IP.
