Well MINIX IS releven right now. It is the only working open source microkernel *NIX we have and it is the only open source microkernel *NIX with the declared goal of working on embedded hardware. It isn't there yet but who knows what will come? I'm hopping that ideas from QNX and the HURD will find their way into MINIX. Just imagine having a free *NIX that is actually a RT kernel out of the box!
