  What do you mean by these terms?  Is it an OS if it simply schedules
tasks?  Or do you use MS's definition, which includes most of the guts
of an internet browser?  By GUI, do you mean a library of routines that
do things like drawing multi-font text or rectangles on the screen?  Or
does it have to support floating menus, tooltips, etc etc?
