mac os x again

En slashdot han vuelto a poner una noticia del núcleo de mac os x. Por primera vez en mucho tiempo, veo un comentario que dice la verdad:

"XNU, the kernel of OS X, is a hybrid of Mach and select BSD code, which leans substantially more towards a monolithic kernel design. What Mach typically handled in a microkernel manner with servers, namely things like the VFS, networking, etc. have all been completely removed in XNU. Where once there were Mach servers there is now the FreeBSD Unified Buffer Cache, to which Apple has attached various FreeBSD subsystems like the FreeBSD VFS and network stack.
XNU is essentially a monolithic kernel, much like Linux."
