shankark asks: "I was doing a paper review on the exokernel, and found some pretty good design ideas in it comparing the work with the monolitic kernel and microkernel architectures. There was also a Slashdot story way back in 1998, but the thread sort of died out. I wanted to know if there is any work being done in trying to incorporate the exokernel design ideas into the mainstream linux kernel. What would be the pros and cons of doing such a thing?"
The UNIX philosophy basically involves giving you enough rope to
