As even its advocates have noted, no matter how much better a 
micro-kernel system looks in teory, in practice it is a royal bitch 
to debug. On top of everything else, there are message-order issues 
which just do not occur in a monolithic kernel.

Minix gets away with it by being utterly simple, as a college CS 
course experiment is good to be.

I like to think of the MACH kernel as the system-level equivalent of 
Duke Nuke'm Forever.
