Well, I have to correct you a little ;-) Tux is not only a webserver for 
static content but also for dynamic content. I am currently working on a 
project that uses the ability of Tux to execute so called Tux-modules.

Tux-modules are shared libraries that can be registered with Tux. These 
modules are executed in the user space and can communicate with the in-kernel 
Tux part via the new systemcall tux().

Bye, Marcus
