Using program language safety[edit]

I'm pretty sure that JX proposed using language-based protection instead of VM separation in a kernel before Unununium (operating system) did, but then I don't actually know when work on the latter started, so I'm not going to change it. JulesH 10:56, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

early user space[edit]

How does user space relate to early user space?

Rename?[edit]

I suggest this article should be renamed to kernel space and user space. --Octra Bond (talk) 03:17, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Userland[edit]

The term Userland usually refers to the various programs and libraries that the rest of the operating system uses to interact with the kernel The Template:Infobox OS contains the term userland. An example from Debian are the GNU Core Utilities. But what about libraries to interact with the Kernel? Is D-Bus such an IPC? Or the C standard library or uClibc? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Echinacin35 (talkcontribs) 09:40, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
