    1919  * Be open-minded. If you are designing a new subsystem or some sort of interface for HelenOS, it may be convenient to do it exactly how it is done in e.g. Linux. Please don't do that, especially not if the only reason would be because Linux does it that way. Remember that cloning a legacy system is not our goal. When evaluating approaches to a problem in other operating systems, use critical thinking and try to find problems of and ways to improve their solutions.
    2020  * Always use English for writing comments.

     24  * Resist temptations to borrow code from GPL projects as most of the HelenOS code is BSD licensed and doing so would automatically switch some of its components to GPL. We don't want this, so don't do it.
