    The Serenity Operating System 🐞

    Project mention: ExectOS – brand new operating system which derives from NT architecture | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-06-19

    Well, it's the best design that was implemented inside SerenityOS when I contributed this, as mentioned inside the PR. The event loop still used select() at the time, although it was migrated to poll() a couple of months ago [1].

    Polling mechanisms that keep track of sets of file descriptors in-kernel are especially useful when there's a large number of them to watch, because with poll() the kernel has to keep copying the sets from userspace at each invocation. Given that SerenityOS is focused on being a Unix-like workstation operating system rather than being a high-performance server operating system, there aren't usually a lot of file descriptors to poll. It's possible that poll() will adequately serve their needs for a long time.
