Deciding on a kernel type

I know I want my kernel to be modular, but I can't decide between a megalithic one or an exokernel. They both have pretty much the same benefits, so it's hard to pick.

Until we get dynamic loading etc, Cosmos can only produce monolithic kernels.

So no modularity either?

You can separate it out into classes and libraries.

So, would a user be able to install one of these classes or libraries while the OS is running?

Oh, I'm sorry. I'm not very experienced. Although I don't want to be annoying, I just want to be sure: I cannot install kernel mode drivers at run time?

Not currently. In the future you will be able to.

OK. Thanks for the help!
