It is in charge for low level hardware interfaces, security, resource allocation, resource allocation, basic filesystem management, and various other things.

This is the 2.x department of the Linux kernel, which is very old yet still used by numerous manufactures for home devices and other integrated devices. It is developed from scratch by Linus Torvalds with help from numerous talented developers.

Being managed on a regular basis, this kernel has the same strong functionality that is already included on current Linux kernels, like the true multitasking, multi-stack networking, shared copy-on-write executables, shared libraries, proper memory management, demand loading, and virtual memory.

It supports a large range of hardware platforms, including 64-bit (IA64, AMD64), 32-bit (i386/i486/i686), ARM, ARM64, MIPS, PowerPC, SUN Sparc, DEC Alpha, Amiga and Atari.
