Anyway. . .
What do you need a microkernel for? Just wanna test things out?
Well I was basically wondering as you suggested what makes linux, with a micro kernel, Linux instead of a BSD distro.
Also, since I'm more familar on the x86 side of things with Linux than BSD (all though I do own 2 OS X machines) I thought it might be more familiar and thus easier to use than a true BSD distro.
I'm also planning on buying a EE P4 with the new system I'm currently building and I thought that there might be performance benefits with a microkernel and a 2MB cache vs a monolithic kernel.
