The linux kernel is a kind of self-extracting executable.
Several compression algorithms are available, which differ
in efficiency, compression and decompression speed.

Its compression ratio and speed is intermediate.
- Decompression speed is slowest among the 3.
- The kernel size is about 10 per cent smaller with bzip2,
- in comparison to gzip.
- Bzip2 uses a large amount of memory. For modern kernels
- you will need at least 8MB RAM or more for booting.
