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.

AFAIK because NT kernel does indeed include some features in kernel space where as pure microkernels separate all of those features into user space, but it still loads other features as services into user space, Therefore NT kernel is called a hybrid kernel. it is not actually monolithic and different from Linux's module architecture. (BeOS is also similarly a adopted a hybrid kernel architecture.) So it is not true to call it monolithic kernel architecture because everything is separated.

I meant "everything is not separated". common mistake while changing and moving around..
