Legal We've talked about ACTA before. ACTA is an anti-capitalistic treaty which implements several measures that will seriously hurt people's freedoms, rights, and privacy, all to, among other things, support a failing business model from an industry which has failed time and time again to adapt to a changing market. In any working free market, business models are allowed to fail, but the US/EU governments clearly don't see it that way. India has now announced that it is going to forge its own anti-ACTA coalition in an effort to undermine the new treaty.

Yea hybrid kernels make this historic debate redundant but I am still glad that someone got my subtle reference.

Can an on-going flame war/debate be a reference?

You saw it here first folks, on OSnews!

If you have a hybrid kernel you have a monolithic kernel. Sorry.

No. A monolithic kernel is a kernel without modules. Any modular kernel is non-monolithic. A microkernel is a kernel where modules (servers/kits) are running in userland. A hybrid kernel is a kernel with a design similar to a microkernel but with servers/kits/modules running in the same memory space as the kernel itself.

There are very few true microkernels and very few true monolithic kernels. True to the nature of human beings we blend the technologies, creating hybrids.
