I believe I should have this figured out by now, but I don't
I've read that the current Linux kernel (or maybe right from the start, can you please confirm?) is a monolithic one.
On the other hand, I've heard people say that the kernel is actually a modular one - I believe this opinion is based on the fact that it is composed of multiple modules that can be loaded / unloaded as needed.
I admit that my knowledge of computer architecture is somewhat limited, and maybe my English skills don't help to explain the little I know about the subject - so I would appreciate if any of you can say a few words about the topic, meaning what type of kernel does Linux have? and why?
Thanks in advance!
