kernel is the basic engine of the operating system.

kexts are special kernel extensions loaded, if needed and fit to the hardware.



for each operating system version there is a kernel ( latest os x is 10.5.2 with 9.2.2 kernel)


with this project there are different kernel and modified "patched" kernels around, some for running on amd-cpus.

vanilla kernels are called the original apple released kernels.


furthermore the kernel is unix-based ( as linux) but modified to fit into apple os.
