Yeah, things aren't really that simple, but Linus himself admitted in
that old flamewar-done-right that he would have preferred to have gone
more modular, if the tech had been up to it. The popular CPUs still
aren't up to it, and I'm not sure if any existing CPU is. (The problem
is not CPU speed, really.)

But I'm also planning on playing with Minix a bit this summer. It
looks like it's going to be a lot closer to what we would all call
useable now. And I'm thinking the question of systemd would be a
non-question in minix, and I kind of want to see.

Be careful where you see conspiracy.
Look first in your own heart.
