Open Source ABCs: Kernel

Welcome to our #100DaysOfOSS series. Until October 31, we'll be doing Open Source Software (OSS) terms from A to Z. We'll be diving into a different letter of the English alphabet, uncovering OSS concepts, and sharing our thoughts on them.

Today, we're covering the letter "K" for Kernel.

Kernel: The kernel is the core component of an operating system. Several open-source operating systems, such as Linux, have a kernel that allows developers to contribute and modify the system's functionality.

Now, we want to hear from you! What other OSS terms can you think of that start with the letter "K"?

Remember to use the hashtag #100DaysOfOSS if you share on social media, and don't forget to tag us @saucedopen so we can follow along.
