OSNews, Generic OSes Now that you have an idea of where your OS project is heading as a whole, it's time to go into specifics. The first component of your OS which you'll have to design, if you're building it from the ground up, is its kernel, so this article aims at being a quick guide to kernel design, describing the major areas which you'll have to think about and guiding you to places where you can find more information on the subject.

Beautiful article!!!

Some years ago I was fascinated reading about L4 and its several implementations. What I find great on microkernels is the way of implementing everything as servers (isolated processes) or implementing several "personalities" running on top of the microkernel; so you could, in theory, having your microkernel with several "virtual machines" running on top of it. Could you think on Xen or VMware ESX Server as having some microkernel-like design?
