What is purpose of Kernel Development - Example SMOAD Networks SDWAN Orchestrator Firewall Kernel Engine ↗Monday' 18-Jul-2022
Often aspiring students may have this question, that what is the purpose of Linux Kernel Development. Since Linux Kernel is very mature and it has
almost everything one would need. Usually, we need custom kernel development in the case of any new driver development for new upcoming hardware.
And this happens on and on. But at times we may also come across few features/modules/components which are already provided by the Linux Kernel which
are not adequate or atleast not the way we exactly intended to use.
So, this is the real-world example, sometimes no matter what Linux Kernel provides as a part of stock Kernel/OS features, sometimes we have
to write our own custom kernel stack or module(s) which can specifically cater our exact needs.
