What is the big advantage of using a mach microkernel? Is it used
because the developers didn't want to reinvent the wheel and thus chose
to use a preexisting platform from which to begin a new os?
Or is it because it has special stability features? I know the hurd is
said to be crash-proof. And apple's new os x runs on a mach kernel,
doesn't it? They claim it is crash-proof. Are they doing a similar
thing with os x as the hurd?
Just a few curious musings.
