Anyone using Minix? BenBoi 12/28/2018 (Fri) 16:28:34 [Preview] No. 13054
Just was wondering if anybody here is running Minix in a serious way. By serious way I mean using it as their daily driver on a desktop or laptop.

I like microkernels and the idea of them a lot and seeing that I have tried Minix before, in a VM ableit, it wasn't too bad and worked well actually. Package management with pkgin (their package manager) worked well and I really did enjoy using.

I still use Linux as with my programming and studying of C and x86 ASM and x86 in terms of the architecture I am going to have to lean to what I use for things such as the system calls Linux has etc. and other OS specific things that cannot be factored out of just using the same ol' x86 with Minix if I were to use it.
