Fuzzy (but realistic) logic:
kernel != operating_system
operating_system > kernel
operating_system - kernel = 0
kernel - (operating_system - kernel) < 0
The Q. I'd like to know the answer to is:
What part of the (operating_system - kernel) part is ready to adopt
Another (license compatibility) Q. is:
If the (operating_system - kernel) is re-licensed under v.3 and
the kernel is still under v.2 , would it be possible to distribute
combination (kernel + (operating_system - kernel)) ?
The last Q. is how good is the almost forgotten Hurd kernel?
