In a related vein, if you have never seen the famous Linus vs. Tanenbaum debate you should really give it a read -- http://groups.google.com/groups?thre...0star.cs.vu.nl


I wonder if Tanenbaum has changed his mind about the design decisions of Linux since 1992? Obviously his arguments about micro vs. mono-lithic kernels have not hindered the development of Linux.
