Minix3

I am quoting the Minix 3 website here:

What Is MINIX 3?

MINIX 3 is a free, open-source, operating system designed to be highly reliable, flexible, and secure. It is based on a tiny microkernel running in kernel mode with the rest of the operating system running as a number of isolated, protected, processes in user mode. It runs on x86 and ARM CPUs, is compatible with NetBSD, and runs thousands of NetBSD packages. Get MINIX 3 now and join our community!

Guess for now that is about it.

Re: Minix3

Something I think is important to know,.. The  current release of Minix is 3.3 ,

However the development snapshots include newer 3.4 versions, :
http://download.minix3.org/iso/snapshot/

These have additional features, and also some more packages are available for them.  It is not that easy to just upgrade
3.3 to 3.4, and is recommended to install fresh.
To avoid needing to re-install, for example 3.3 does not include the X11, and Xorg servers, or any window managers. The 3.4
development images do. Also ImageMagick is not available for 3.3.

http://www.minix3.org/pkgsrc/packages/3.4.0/i386/All/

Note:

 cd /usr/pkg/etc/pkgin/
$ ls
repositories.conf
$ pico repositories.conf

Re: Minix3

So if Linux is so great, Why did Intel choose Minix, instead of Linux ? and why are the Linux crowd so jealous about it ?
