The structure of any Unix operating system is made up of 4 components.
Kernel – This part is called the heart of Linux. Because it is the core part of the operating system. All types of commands and tasks are done with the help of the kernel. It helps in communication between software and hardware. There is only one kernel in a Linux operating system.
Shell – This is a command line interpreter, which interconnects the user and the kernel. And all types of programs and commands are typed in the shell itself and executed with the help of Kernel. Because it deletes all types of commands and sends a request to the program to attribute it, it is also called a command interpreter.
Utilities – This part provides a powerful operating system to the person using Linux.
Hardware – It is the physical layer, in which all types of peripheral devices are connected.
