The microkernel approach is to define a very simple abstraction over the
hardware, with a set of primitives or system calls to implement minimal OS
But in reality, the performance of MicroKernel is often poor enough and the
implementation is complicated enough that still today most OperatingSystems are
: An approach to operating systems design which puts emphasis on small modules which implement the basic features of the system kernel and can be flexibly configured. More »
