My point is that I have some fairly complex operational environments.
The distinction between the "operating system" and everything else
isn't that clear.  What is part of the OS?  The kernel?  The boot
loader? (It has several parts.)  Dynamically-loaded
modules?  /sbin/init?  The shell?  My virtual machines?  The Xen
hypervisor?  (I don't yet run Xen on my laptop.  I will as soon as it
supports power management.)
