Well, i think this is the first time i write to this list since i am
subscribed, and i hope not to do too much unnecessary noise since it
isn't going to be a technical posting, but i got some doubts about the
recent discussions in this list, mainly initiated by Mr. Guillaume.
I have been following through this list your recent posting Mr.
Guillaume, and though i have found interesting many things about them,
and actually agree with some of your point (for example, the idea of
writing a new language to design a new kernel in which such a
distinction between language and system doesn't exist), i still don't
understand what it is the main point of you to continue sending such an
email to the list without a clear purpose, objective or road to follow;
i mean, it is not i find them as something bad (it has even given some
life to this mailing list which i think it is good, and i have enjoined
reading some of your links posted), but i still fail to see where you
really want to get at.
For example, some proposal, ideas, suggestions , that i guess you are
trying to communicate to the Hurd community, in form of something
specific , as a (new?)project maybe? ... something probably that we
could cooperate with or start working at?, if that isn't your purpose,
what is it then?

kaneton is a microkernel with a very powerful design and implementation
leading to a flexible, reliable and secure microkernel based operating
The kaneton project is composed of two very distinctive parts:
The first part is pedagogical and consists in provinding people
everything necessary to learn operating systems concepts from basic
operating system functionalities through the microkernel architecture to
advanced distributed operating system concepts.
The second part consists in the development of a reliable, secure and
flexible reference implementation which, in a near future, will be used
as a basis for a distributed operating system. This reference
implementation is developed by experienced people.
For more information about the kaneton microkernel design, take a look
at the Papers section. In addition, an article about the kaneton
microkernel was published in June, 2006 on the specialized website
