TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
During the boot process the operating system is loaded into memory and
executed. After doing diagnostic checks the system reads in the boot program
from the disk, or other boot device. The boot program locates the kernel and
loads it into memory. When the kernel is executed it does initial checks on
system hardware resources and attempts to initialize the devices. The kernel
then starts up a few processes, including init, which executes the
initialization scripts for the system.
You can't technically "boot" an application because the OS is already loaded
as is the kernel. The devices have already been checked.
