Have I heard of it? I was the first who
mentioned it in this thread. Perhaps not in
a sensible way...

The Emacs kernel is, I think, the part of Emacs
that runs all the time, that loops indefinitely
unless told otherwise, and from which Emacs can
schedule things with, for example, the idle

This makes Emacs an OS not just in the
"interface-to-the-whole-computer" sense, but
also in the scheduler sense.

But it isn't a Unix OS just because it is
a scheduler.

These are just clues I've picked up...
