OSNews, Generic OSes The Hurd is still doing its thing. "Jeremie Koenig started working on his Google Summer of Code project: bringing not only Java to the Hurd, but also fixing or adding missing parts in the Hurd's components along the way. For example, he already contributed a set of signal handling improvements. Samuel Thibault created the first Debian GNU/Hurd CD set with a graphical installer. You can dowload it at the usual place for Debian CD images."

You should go with Symbian, then, not OSX. Why use a hybrid kernel when there is a true microkernel?

(The OSX kernel is not really "micro" anymore, even though it is derived from Mach.)

The OSX kernel was never a Microkernel nor was the Mach kernel used in NeXTSTEP.

The previous poster listed very high level APIs as OSX's added value, not the internals of its kernel, micro or otherwise.
