Spend enough time around Android and eventually you will come across the term, “the Linux kernel.” What is a kernel? Let’s find out!

Watching this video i came to know that the windows is using the ANTI Kernel (before this i thought that Microsoft uses a custom built kernel), my doubts are cleared now & its a good thing, i wanted to know how these operating system thing works, which i might have to go even deeper to learn. Thanks for the provided information Gary, its really greatly appreciated. :)
@7:49 Only if it does not go against their priorities. The priorities of a single user might differ from those of a smartphone company.
@8:05 That is the truncated version of there is not the one and only solution.
Glad to finally see someone who actually qualifies to speak on a tech channel. All these channels and ridiculous article sites are full of people who think they're "techie" but have no authority to speak on any subject.
As far as I know kernel is not the lowest piece of software on every OS, it is so in Linux. On other operating systems like Windows or some real time operating systems like FreeRTOS you have device drivers/HAL (hardware abstraction layer) that are not part of the kernel nor a part of OS. So the OS has certain APIs to certain hardware modules and then it is the task of driver developers to create drivers that actually implement those function calls from OS API. Maybe I'm wrong, if so feel free to correct me.
when we put our phones on sleep, what if that time process decreases and our battery life increases and we use our phone that time our process increase according to our needs
isn't it by this method we get bhot the things battery life as well as processors speed at same time
Just a quick note. Kernel doesn't talk directly to the hardware. It would be impossible for it to do so as every CPU might have different instruction set and so on.
That's why hardware manufacturers include firmware with their products. On personal computers this firmware is called BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) or UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) which sits between hardware and kernel.
