    Nothing is perfect.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    as Flatline said, nothing is perfect, and linux is far from it. It is a relatively standard design. There was the Micro vs marco kernel discussion between Linus and Andrew Tanenbaum, there is the Hurd (which is developing very slowly which has some new feature (create you own filesystem for example), reworking code, etc.....

    There will more than likely also be extra technologies that would be useful to incorporate into the kernel, so the development will continue (if nothing else) adding extra harware in
