What is the Linux Kernel and How Does It Work?

CBT Nuggets trainer John McGovern covers how to read and understand a Linux kernel version number. The Linux kernel is obviously the heart of the Linux operating system, and it’s constantly receiving improvements and version updates. Believe it or not, the numbering conventions have changed, and keeping track of the current version, as well as differentiating stable and long-term kernels, can prove to be tricky.
