Being a know-nothing slob, I am not keen to get into a
Torvalds-Tanenbaum.  The point I was trying to make is that the
kernels of QNX and Unix are very different animals.

I try to follow the summaries of linux-kernel, and I get the
impression that Linus Torvalds tries very hard to keep stuff out of
the kernel where possible.  If you want to see a country-fair kernel,
check out Windows NT.
