    : is unix kernel is preemptive or not
    Depends what you mean by unix. I think the traditional unix model is to only allow one process to run kernel code at any time, this process is NOT preemptible, but is interruptable.

    however i believe "more modern" kernels, that follow in the unix tradition, are preemptive, kernels such as linux and the sun os kernel.
