Do you plan to port the BeOS to the Mach microkernel?

No, the BeOS will continue to be based on its own microkernel.

The primary advantage of the BeOS is that it is a written-from-scratch, fully modern operating system. Porting to the Mach microkernel would eliminate many of the advantages of the BeOS, and give the BeOS zero advantages (the Mach microkernel, all by itself, gives the user or even the application developer very little). So why would we want to do that?
