    Interesting indeed. I suppose it makes more sense for them than starting from scratch + coming up with some overblown milspec monster coded in Ada or somesuch.

    It's the layer that talks to your hardware and makes it possible for your programs to request resources.
    Ok, so what talks to your hardware are the drivers, but I consider them to be part of the kernel, after all, they're linked with it.
