A modern kernel obviously uses some form of distributed microkernel design with Internet and social networking integration.

You see, each time such a computer connects to the internet, it becomes automatically parts of the "hive mind". When someone starts a power-intensive calculation on such a modern OS, like a Blender render, that calculation is distributed across all available nodes, resulting in render times that are pretty close to the latency of the slowest connexion for still HD images.

And because this modern OS is based on a microkernel with AES-encrypted message passing as the main IPC method, security breaches never occur.

(Note : This was a joke, based on my vision of current academia OS design fantasies. You are asked not to take it seriously. Please. Pretty please.)
