You mean 1980's technology like synchronous system call entry
that requires an explicit process or thread argument to hang all
its continuations on?

Oh wait, you can't mean that, because VMS had asynchronous system
traps back in the 1980's; it's been over 20 years, and it seems
that the only OS we've been willing to learn from is the one we
started out biased towards...

Maybe you mean 1980's technology, like a single priviledge binder
called "root" or "superuser".

Oh wait, you can't mean that, because that's *1970's* technology...

If I'd has my way in 1994, POSIX would be a user-space library...
and almost no one would be linking it into their code.
