Debian updating kernel
While the adoption of the Linux kernel in desktop computer operating system is low, Linux-based operating systems dominate nearly every other segment of computing, from mobile devices to mainframes.As of November 2017 for his personal computer and with no cross-platform intentions, but has since expanded to support a huge array of computer architectures, many more than other operating systems or kernels.
I'd like any feedback on things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat (same physical layout of the file-system (due to practical reasons) among other things).
It uses every conceivable feature of the 386 I could find, as it was also a project to teach me about the 386.
As already mentioned, it uses a MMU, for both paging (not to disk yet) and segmentation.
After that, many people contributed code to the project.
Early on, the MINIX community contributed code and ideas to the Linux kernel.
Despite the limited functionality of the early versions, Linux rapidly gained developers and users.
