Linux "Both of these articles allude to the fact that I'm working on putting the D-Bus protocol into the kernel, in order to help achieve these larger goals of proper IPC for applications. And I'd like to confirm that yes, this is true, but it's not going to be D-Bus like you know it today. Our goal (and I use 'goal' in a very rough term, I have 8 pages of scribbled notes describing what we want to try to implement here), is to provide a reliable multicast and point-to-point messaging system for the kernel, that will work quickly and securely. On top of this kernel feature, we will try to provide a 'libdbus' interface that allows existing D-Bus users to work without ever knowing the D-Bus daemon was replaced on their system."

Nope ;)

Its just adding features that are needed by modern computers.

D-Bus made huge inroads into Linux because of its value. Its hight level sockets abstraction.

AF_BUS is similar to D-Bus but in Kernel already (3.4 LTI), but its for automotive industry mostly. Something more general is cooked. And that is good.
