I’ve thinking and, before Linux, MINIX was the best operating system for students, and it even helped Linus Torvalds for creating it. Is it still used for educational or commercial purposes? Could you give aniy example?

Does Intel Management Engine, the thing that is being baked into every Intel CPU for more than a decade, count as commercial purpose?

Minix is definitely still used for educational purposes. Tanenbaum has a still in print textbook “Operating Systems Design and Implementation” that is used in many operating system courses that uses it as the model.
