I imagine you can change settings on the fly, that would in fact be part of the point of sticking the code in the kernel...

Re the comic: Linux has been far more advanced than most other OSs for a while, admittedly it loses out slightly to OpenSolaris, and a Cocoa like GUI system would be nice, but Linux is pretty darn good, and far more modern than Windows. Program Manager anyone (still in sys folder afaik)?

Nope, they got rid of it in Vista. Now how am I going to manage my programs!?


Linux is more advanced than Windows on many layers, but it still falls flat on the GUI end of things. Seriously, try manipulating installed hardware drivers in Linux, and you'll see what I mean.
