That's where the term 'hybrid' comes in. Basically, DFly is monolithic 
due to it's ancestry, with microkernel features added (the message 
passing structure et al). The theory is, the current kernel could be 
split up into independent userspace servers pretty easily because the 
way they communicate is transparent: the message passing interface.
