    I’ve been enjoying this series. Particularly because I went into it without a clear idea of which computing tasks an OS kernel is responsible for. It’s very specific to the Linux kernel, but it’s a good introduction to the idea of a kernel.

      You mean you were unsure which tasks Linux is responsible for in general, outside the context of this episode? (I don’t think I caught any reference to Linux in this episode). Not trying to judge, just trying to understand what you meant.

        Oh geez! I’ve embarrassed myself. I’ve been reading an “advent calendar of linux system calls” and I thought this post linked to that series. Sorry for the confusion. Here’s a link https://osg.tuhh.de/Advent/ I really should have clicked the link, or read the tilte more carefully before commenting.
