As far as I know the kernel doesn't have a user interface in the sense
the term is used for a graphical user application such as GIMP. It does
provide a lot of interfaces to device drivers and to the higher levels
of the operating system though. And these interfaces are changing quite
Perhaps this was a misunderstanding. I don't really understand the
