Re: Should've asked about microkernels

What would be the point? As I pointed out above the GNU Mach/Hurd kernel is doing that, and there is even a version of Debian that can be run on top of it. If Linus tried to replicate that he'd be reinventing the wheel. I suspect he might express his displeasure at the thought of doing so, were he asked :-}

What'd be grand would be if the Mach/Hurd team got more support, so far as I can see. (NB: I am not a programmer, and have no idea if the Mach/Hurd team even want any more help at this juncture.)
