  1. The Tanenbaum-Torvalds debate is a debate between Andrew S. Tanenbaum(pic 1) and Linus Torvalds(pic 2), regarding Linux and kernel architecture in general. Tanenbaum began the debate in 1992 on the Usenet discussion group comp.os.minix,[1] arguing that microkernels are superior to monolithic kernels and therefore Linux was, even in 1992, obsolete.

    1. Dr. Andrew S. Tanenbaum
    2. Linus Torvalds

    The name of the battle is called as ‘flame war’ because of deliberate hostile exchange of messages, between the two camps of MINIX and Linux respectively

    The Tanenbaum-Torvalds debate over which is better- micro kernel or monolithic kernel.

    great question! :-)


  6. Goutham D.L

    Torvalds vs Tanenbaum
    Linux vs MINIX


  7. Shreyas

    The debate between Andrew Tanenbaum and Linus Torvalds about which type of OS is better : Monolithic or Microkernel.


  8. FDOB

    tanenbaum, torvalds – the linux should have been designed as a microkernel controversy.

    Person 1: Andrew Tanenbaum (henceforth known as the Minix Guy)
    Person 2: Linus Torvalds (henceforth known as the Linux Guy)

    The Debate: Well, in a nutshell, Linux guy said linux is better, and Minix guy said minix is better…
