    5757=== How is HelenOS different from MINIX 3? ===
    5858
    59 MINIX 3 is a multiserver system which comes with its own microkernel and NetBSD userland. The microkernel does not support threads. As of version 3.3.0, MINIX runs on single-processor ia32 and arm32 systems. Some multiprocessor code is present, but has been unmaintained since version 3.1.x. MINIX 3 comes with two alternative networking stacks. Its own ```inet``` server and ```lwip``` server based on the lwIP networking stack. Even though lwIP contains some experimental support for IPv6, both servers are IPv4 only. IPv6 suppor for the ```lwip``` server is work in progress. Both ```inet``` and ```lwip``` have monolithic architecture that combines IP, UDP and TCP in one process. Some research has been done on making the networking stack modular. The file systems and most of the device drivers have been developed specifically for MINIX. USB is available on arm32

MINIX 3 features a resurrection service that can in some situtations restart failing or misbehaving services.
