OSNews, Generic OSes It's funny how trying to have a consistent system design makes you constantly jump from one area of the designed OS to another. I initially just tried to implement interrupt handling, and now I'm cleaning up the design of an RPC-based daemon model, which will be used to implement interrupt handlers, along with most other system services. Anyway, now that I get to something I'm personally satisfied with, I wanted to ask everyone who's interested to check that design and tell me if anything in it sounds like a bad idea to them in the short or long run. That's because this is a core part of this OS' design, and I'm really not interested in core design mistakes emerging in a few years if I can fix them now. Many thanks in advance.

I will, but I got the feeling that you are not ready to accept the criticism you asked for. The overarching problem here is that most of the world is in mental models that consist of code instead of data, and thus code calls instead of semantic interchange, and thus implementation details of how to do something, instead of what to do. It turns out to be hard for people to switch models, so I have stopped trying over time.
