> Graphics into the kernel?
Whether or not the graphics subsystem is part of the operating
system's kernel or not is highly controversial, and popular opinion
seems to change over time. For example, a certain other major OS has
had graphics in, and then out of, the kernel several times now.

What can we learn from the ants and bees? Perhaps something we can
take something from the ants that may be helpful for clustering. If
