Debian and its clones If you are reading this, I assume you already know what the Linux kernel is and why you may want to update it. However, if you are accidentally reading this walkthrough, just happen to be running Linux, and have no idea what the kernel is or why you would want to update it, the next two paragraphs are for you (if you are looking instead into a less verbose and more generic way of updating your kernel on any Linux distro, read here). In a neophyte nutshell, the Linux kernel is the brain of the Linux system. It tells your system which file systems, hardware, protocols, etc. are supported. There is a lot more to it than that, of course, but I think that diminutive description will suffice for now.

I did not submit my comment as the intended REPLACEMENT to this article, now did I? I know how to write tutorials as I've been writing them for years, many of which have been extremely popular and well-received.

Would you morons please learn the difference between what is criticism of an article and what is an article itself? I'm not going to defend my perfectly sound position any more, the number of people who have supported it as well is proof enough that my points stand to reason on their own in spite of my arguments.
