Mach has many useful design choices and is a very viable operating
system infrastructure. Mach can technically have "personalities" of as
many other OSes that you like and they can all run concurrently.

It is commonly accepted in the academic circles (which is where Mach
comes from) that the design of Mach is good but the original
implementation of Mach left much to be desired.
