   Alfred, quoted above, said that "The operating system is called
   GNU".  That seemed to imply that the kernel is not part of the
   operating system (since the Linux kernel is not part of GNU).  I
   was seeking clarification on that point.

But the Hurd is part of the GNU operating system, which is the GNU
kernel.  One should also recall that not all operating systems have a
named kernel, for example the BSD's.
