   Nonsense.  Embedded applications work directly on top of a kernel.

They require a bit more than a kernel to run, so no, they don't work
directly on top of a kernel.  If you implement the operating system
directly in the kernel, then the kernel and operating are the same.  

   > GNU is one operating system that works with Linux,

   More nonsense.  Operating systems certainly require a kernel (in
   fact, the standard Computer Science definition pretty much covers
   _only_ the kernel unless we are talking Microkernel-based systems).
   GNU without kernel is not an operating system.

Sure it is.  The only nonsense is what you have said.

David, you really ought to go and take a CS class..
