Hmm, others think different. Check out wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux
"Linux (pronunciation: IPA: /ˈlɪnʊks/, lin-uks) is a Unix-like
computer operating system."
Also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operating_system: "An operating
system (OS) is the software that manages the sharing of the resources
of a computer and provides programmers with an interface used to
access those resources." So "kernel" matches this definition perfectly.
