"Component for Linux OS."

Linux Kernel is the backbone of any Linux-based distribution. In essence, the Linux kernel is the centralized development of a brain that all major Linux operating system versions use. Without a functional kernel, no Linux operating system can boot-up. The kernel is developed independently of each individual Linux distribution like Ubuntu or RedHat. From time to time, the kernel is updated with new features, speed improvements and bug fixes. The Linux distribution being used as the central operating system will then be checked to test the new kernel with their code base to ensure compatibility. Once they are sure that it's compatible, Linux repositories will be updated so that that version of Linux can update with the new kernel automatically for users when they run their next software update.

Linux Kernel Key Features:

  • The brain of all Linux-based operating systems
  • Updated periodically
  • Individual Linux distribution will test their Linux distribution with the new Linux kernel for stability before releasing it

Linux Kernel is the key part of all Linux operating systems and is updated several times a year.
