Sorry, but I must insist to be pedantic here. I said that performance is not
a concern, not that it is not an issue. Performance is very important, but I
don't think one needs to be concerned about it right now, and I also think
that using MiG or CORBA will probably not do much to the performance of the
Hurd. (We need to profile the Hurd, so we see where our concerns should be).

Well, this indeed is not really an issue :-}

I think it is single server, not multi server. There are many single server
systems, and they share the same deficiencies as monolithical kernels.
The linux kernel is also "modular", the term is not clear and as thus it is
confusing to use it.
