Is the Windows NT Kernel becoming outdated?
Posted 19 November 2006 - 04:41 PM
I must say the NT kernal has improved over the years, proberly one of its best achievements is replacing the 9x kernel that home users used to use. Now how much more improvements can Microsoft make to the kernel? Will there come a time when it will reach its limits?
Do you think Microsoft will have to start with something new?

I like the idea of microkernels, running only the most basic low-leval tasks and having a kernel-side extension to handle file systems, mini drivers, protocols stacks and so on... all inside a special protected memory area. Note that im not saying that such things should run on user-mode, but maybe a special-mode between kernel-mode and user-mode. This way even very low-level components could crash and be recovered by the kernel.
