Response to: FileVault performance tax
It's the other way around. NT and Darwin have a microkernel and Linux has a monolithic. Not too sure if it is a big issue anymore since many of the advantages of a ukernel have been incorporated in Linux, very few things take advantage of the inherent advantages of a ukernel ("Classic" old Windows compatibility), and the slowdown of a ukernel vs. a monolithic gets marginalized as applications get more complex. (Certainly not an "order of magnitude" like the original flamebait claims.)
