well, i think its cool!

AB: What do you see as the near future development goals of MINIX?
AT: Making it self-healing, I think with version 3.1.3 it should be possible to start a long file transfer over the network, then repeatedly kill the disk driver and Ethernet driver to simulate driver crashes and have the transfer complete correctly with no errors, despite the drivers being automatically replaced on the fly during operation multiple times. Other systems don’t do quite as well when drivers crash (or are killed to simulate crashes). They go belly up instantly.

AB= Alan Berg vom Free Software Magazine
AT= Andy Tanenbaum (ja, DER Tanenbaum)

Quelle: MINIX: what is it, and why is it still relevant?
