The MH experiment

A hardware-inspired microkernel interface.

Defining abstractions and mechanisms for inter-process communication is at the heart of every new microkernel design. This talk will introduce MH, a microkernel at its early stages built to experiment with the idea of a microkernel interface heavily inspired by hardware architecture.

The talk will continue by showing how, by exposing an interface composed of entities well known to OS-level engineers, such system can be used to express classical operating systems interfaces or to experiment with newer ideas altogether.
