Yeah, that's true, but not very informative. Look, I don't follow OSes all that much anymore, but if I had to call up an OS that would be made up of more of a set of indenpendent pieces, I think I would choose the GNU Hurd OS. From everything I read, it was never very successful, if one counts the ability to return some good throughput as being successful ... or, maybe they have some other characteristic which I'm not aware of. Anyhow, the HURD (at least in concept) is far, far more of a component based OS than anything else I'm aware of is. It's an interesting concept, at the very least, and I do understand it works. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.9 (FreeBSD) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iEYEARECAAYFAkiOQCcACgkQz62J6PPcoOkrAgCbBafpW+o8BqrV/t/S8ta8hd1b PykAnRtV8B28azFi9ffdYDrGfWYIfjlR =64AQ -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
