The marketing division of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation defines a Kernel as
Your plastic pal that's fun to be with.
Anyone got anything that they think they should add to this definition?
[Linux] is an example of a MonolithicKernel, while TheHurd is an example of a MicroKernel
Remember, you can't boot a kernel by itself, hence the ReligiousWar of [RMS] vs common usage. Attempting to boot "Linux" would result in something along the lines of "Kernel Panic: Cannot find init". Trying to boot what [RMS] calls GNU/Linux would result in the OS we know and love.
