+ < stargater> then is mach not more microkernel
+ < stargater> when it have driver inside
+ < braunr> mach is a hybrid
+ < braunr> even without drivers
+ < stargater> in www i read mach is microkernel
+ < stargater> not hybrid
+ < braunr> the word microkernel usually includes hybrids
+ < braunr> true microkernels are also called nanokernels
+ < braunr> the word isn't that important, what matters is that mach does
+ more in kernel than what the microkernel principle implies
+ < braunr> e.g. high level async IPC and high level virtual memory
+ operations
+ < braunr> including physical memory management
