Who has'nt heared of Linus, the kid maverick and the great theorist Andrew Tanenbaum. But this thread between the both of them arguing over different OS architecures is fun to follow.

I didn't mean it like that - I more meant "Look at what they were arguing about back then - and how irrelevant Minix is now".

I Agree!!
Yup !! But it was'nt about Minix Vs Linux as much as it was bout Microkernel Vs Monolithic OS'es . Well today, you still have Windows 2xxx Vs Linux. Windows 2x happens to be based on Microkernel where as Linux is Monolithic.
