Major new features include full support for shared libraries and improved support for USB devices such as keyboards, mice and mass storage devices.

    yeah... just now getting shared lib support? Am I supposed to be impressed, surprised, amused, perhaps scholastically challenged on a theoretical level...?

    Don't be a dick. I first used Minix back in the late 1980s, when it first came out, on an IBM PC/AT. It's great for educational purposes, perhaps even better than Linux/BSD. Any continuing progress on something like this is a good thing.
