I don’t see that Fuchsia/Zircon’s way of doing IPC: asynchronous message passing would be that easily mapped to the Mill’s Portal calls though. So, the Mill wouldn’t have an advantage over any other architecture on that point … or put another way: Zircon would have slow IPC anywhere.
(But if I’m wrong, please tell. 😉 )

I can imagine that synchronous IPC where the caller always blocks (such as in L4 or QNX) to be easier to do though, even though it is not a perfect model.

BTW. Another thing with Zircon that irks me is that capabilities are not revocable (except by killing the process/group). The Mill’s temporary grants are precisely what I’ve always wanted.
