OSNews, Generic OSes It's funny how trying to have a consistent system design makes you constantly jump from one area of the designed OS to another. I initially just tried to implement interrupt handling, and now I'm cleaning up the design of an RPC-based daemon model, which will be used to implement interrupt handlers, along with most other system services. Anyway, now that I get to something I'm personally satisfied with, I wanted to ask everyone who's interested to check that design and tell me if anything in it sounds like a bad idea to them in the short or long run. That's because this is a core part of this OS' design, and I'm really not interested in core design mistakes emerging in a few years if I can fix them now. Many thanks in advance.

You keep defending your existing notions, instead of entertaining the notion I introduced that is apparently new to you. Do you agree that declarative data is at a higher abstraction level than a procedure call? Do you agree that not specifying an implementation language is simpler than specifying a specific language?

If you are not willing to look at common implementations, lessons from history become meaningless, either good or bad. Do you have experience with messaging in Amiga, BeOS, Syllable, microkernels, REBOL, enterprise messaging, or anything else?
