    at least he wasn't lazy like linus and didn't make the kernel monolithic. now that linux is like that there's a snowball chance in hell that it will be converted to a hybrid.

    Honestly having a hard time following that post

    Are you saying Linus was lazy for wanting to make the kernel monolithic or are you saying Hybrid kernels are for the lazy?

    DragonFlyBSD is no more microkernel than Linux.

    It's very annoying to read every time from Linux fan boys that nothing outside Linux is worth even considering...
    Here is some guy trying to do something for the software community, with very interesting alternatives to offer, and as usual those doing nothing (I assume they are doing nothing; if they were doing something I'm sure they wouldn't be so stupid) can only offer destructive criticism. It's a shame that Phoronix is full of these fools.

    DragonFlyBSD kernel is called hybrid, because it has message passing, which allows things to be moved into user-space.
    However I am not aware of any part of kernel actualy running in user-space at the moment. OK, they moved a bit into library.
