a subsystem designates an extension for operating system cores. Mikrokernel - architectures use this for different tasks, are it also possible with an operating system different binary formats to be implemented. So for example the operating system can process Microsoft Windows of formats such as DOS , Win16 and Win32. With monolithic architectures, like with Linux, subsystems are used rather rarely. A well-known subsystem for Linux are the SELinux - safety extensions of the NSA.
