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 ?
