I'm most probably out of the loop with regards to what's fashionable in terms of kernels (I still run the boring monolithic kind, after all), but always assumed that hybrid kernels were the in-thing for geeks. Did "hybrid" suddenly become a dirty word?

AFAIK, the "hybrid" term has been used way too often by monolithic kernel projects that denied their true nature, and has become pretty meaningless nowadays as a result.

In fact, the microkernel concept did also suffer similar abuse in the past, to the point where some projects sarcastically called themselves "nanokernels" to distance themselves from big offenders like the Mach project. But, nowadays, it seems that people start to use that word more carefully and responsibly again.
