    I would side with Viro here. Just as we would all cringe if MSFT added
    COM/ActiveX support to the NT kernel, us Unix folks cringe at the
    thought of adding CORBA to the kernel. However, that doesn't mean that
    we dislike the idea of exporting kernel services and interfaces for use
    in userland. And Plan9 seems to have some rather elegant and efficient
    methods for doing that. In Plan9, everything really is a file! It's as
    if they got a chance to do Unix again, and they did it consistently this
    time.
