Original Abstract

Contemporary operating systems are trying to offer as much flexibility as possible. But still they are far from being perfect. Purpose of this article is to offer idea of another way how to achieve "maximum flexibility" (besides of other gains). Firstly we will speak about actual possibilities touching on their positives and negatives. Then actual proposals for improvements will be explored. Suggested changes are based on viewing OS kernel as a jigsaw puzzle. Consisting of many small parts with well defined shape, we can assemble any final image the user can request. Let try to transform OS kernel to such pieces and explore possibilities we
can obtain. This model is not too far from current modular systems but using fully modular system means new possibilities and perspectives.
