muddiest point

This is going to sound stupid, but I have trouble figuring out how all of the OS parts fit together. I understand pretty much everything when it is dealt with separately, probably because I've had to fix a ridiculous number of minor computer meltdowns, but I just can't quite wrap my mind around everything functioning together as a whole. For example, I know what the kernal is and what it does, and I understand what all of the bits and pieces of the OS do...but somehow I just can't understand how they all fit together and overlap.

Also, completely off topic - but I loved the screenshot of the 1984 Apple OS - that was one of the first computers I ever used.
