I appreciate to see micro-kernel operating systems going forward.

Minix even has got last year European Union funding to do research on improving the security and reliability in operating systems.

Minix's academic orientation causes it to be of less use to most of us than Linux or BSD. Too bad, in many ways its an excellent OS.
