Kernel designs[edit]

I don't understand this part of the template:

Kernel:
General: Microkernel · Nanokernel
Types: monolithic · hybrid · exokernel

What is "general"? General kernel designs are microkernel and monolithic kernel. A hybrid would then be one that possesses qualities of both. Exokernel is orthogonally different design, but it either fits in one or the other category. Nanokernel is a microkernel even more miniaturized. So there are two basic designs. Considering that, what does the above "general" and "types" mean? --Paxcoder (talk) 16:40, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Removal of 'Nanokernel' architecture subtype[edit]

Nanokernel has been redirecting to Microkernel since 2008. Why is Nanokernel still listed as an architecture subtype when it is apparently not notable enough to get its own article? The Nanokernel-part of the Microkernel article looks a lot like a disambiguation-page; if Nanokernel doesn't even have a proper definition why does it count as a subtype? I suggest removing Nanokernel from the Operating system template. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.70.160.55 (talk) 16:41, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Adding long mode to CPU modes[edit]

I believe long mode is more than prevalent to warrant its addition into the cpu modes field. (It is one after all!) Edit: After I get to 10 edits :p Added by Jon Weldon II: (talk) 04:21, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 10 November 2013[edit]

The list of operating systems includes Oberon and a large collection of other OSes. I understand it may look awkward to have such a long list under the "list" section of the template. However, as is, it is confusing and inadequate. Despite there is already a link on the left field to "list", there should also be a more... link at the end of the pseudo-full list that points to the true full list as well.

Please edit GNU to GNU Hurd[edit]

As GNU is a software project, and GNU Hurd is the operating system. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.56.183.105 (talk) 23:58, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 05:32, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
