    I might sound lame to you or not knowledgable but what is a kernel and in this post are you creating one; and if so can you tell me where I can read a tutorial or can you recommend a book to read. Also I wanted to ask for someone who wants to learn linux what tutorial online would you recommend and or books to read. I am fascinated with your knowledge; I don’t necessarily agree with what you like :) especially that the cursing in this post is amusing. I don’t find profanity amusing I am afraid :).
