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.
