	I don't recall him saying that.  10 years ago kernel efficiency
      was a real issue.  Now it is not.

	IMHO, the mistake was nothing to do with microkernel per se.
      Designing and implementing an "aggressively parallel" kernel was
      difficult and took a long time. The problem was a delay that it
      allowed Linux to exist.
