    I am having problem to understand some statement

    kernel is not modular,
    kernel is not fault tolerant ,
    kernel is not configurable
    kernel is not power optimized

    can anyone explain little bit ?

    Have you looked up those words and phrases on dictionary.com and Wikipedia?

    YES I tried
    modular - the code is separated into small functions
    fault tolerant - being able to handle faults
    configurable - means run time configurable
    power optimized- when no task are running processors have a low power state which can be used in a kernel

    Great! Those descriptions are pretty brief. I'm sure you found more detailed information about them as well. So you have answered your question.

    Weeeeell... Maybe not.

    Does he have an intuitive understanding of "is not"?
