Although it is not a microkernel architecture,1 the Linux kernel is modular. Functionality can be either compiled into the Linux kernel or inserted into the kernel during runtime as loadable kernel modules. In the sense of modularity, the Linux kernel is similar to a microkernel architecture. However, unlike a microkernel in which device drivers and other kernel code that is not part of the kernel core are executed as separate but privileged processes, ...
