i guess there's something missing in it_

i would say: "a modern general-purpose multiserver microkernel os.."

the 'modern' part of it means the will to create the sound system, usb
/ wifi stacks,

>missing that
a gp os should have nowadays_

the word 'kernel' is rather reductive_

i guess you want to have an os, not just a kernel, but the kernel itself is
(ranging from mach, to l4, to coyotos, viengoos or whatever will possibly be)
built with a microkernel+multiserver architecture_

i would mention that thing as it is a different beast compared to NT,
OSX, Linux, BSD...

it's just words, anyway..
