And the following status message came while installing the linux kernel
"The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)"
And this page explains it like this:
"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."
So when I extracted the vmlinuz out of the ISO image, what is remaining in the ISO image? Did I extract the OS itself from ISO image? ;)
Being a Keralite, where the high school students study the free software as part of curriculum, and taught to use the word GNU or GNU/Linux for Operating system and Linux for the kernel, and as I had given this link and this link to my friends many time(well, I know about the controversy too), it forces me to ask a silly question:
Is it really painful to write those three letters (GNU) while mentioning about the OS?
