Operating system is the system software that manages the computer. Its tasks include managing the computer resources and accommodating their communication needs.The kernel is the lowest level of the operating system. The Kernel is the main part of an operating system that mostly caries out direct communication with the hardware resources. Without the kernel, an operating system cannot operate.
