"The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system) The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of any Linux operating system. The kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation, device input and output, etc."
Please don't use the name Linux for both Kernel and Operating system. Other than the core, there is nothing more in the Operating system with the name 'Linux'. Calling the Operating system as Linux is wrong at least when we are describing a package that contains the 'Linux kernel'Full story »
