    reason why general os is not suitable for rtos

    I am having problem to understand some statement

    kernel is not modular,
    kernel is not fault tolerant ,
    kernel is not configurable
    kernel is not power optimized

    my effort to understand

    modular - the code is separated into small functions
    fault tolerant - being able to handle faults
    configurable - means run time configurable
    power optimized- when no task are running processors have a low power state which can be used in a kernel

    can anyone explain little bit ?
