You have ability to give beginners directions (but that you can do
that in any article), what Portal makes different is the name. Users
with some experience with Wikipedia, will expect general overview of
the topic as that what they know from there.
Do you really think, the article [[Kernel]] is now an "overview"?

I have never seen a Portal: Wikipedia article. Do you have an example?
For a portal or for an article?

Ah, I had no idea these existed, I guess they must be far more popular
in Europe the US because I have never seen anyone use one before.

This might explain why :)

"Portals originated in the Polish and German Wikipedias"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Portal#What_are_portals.3F

The creation (and maintenance) of [[Portal:Kernel]] does not mean there
should not be a (basic and defining) article [[Kernel]], too.

I see that they provide news, and featured articles, etc. That is a lot
of work to maintain and I don't want to do it. I tried creating a
Portal:Kernel but ran out of ideas of what it would be useful for.

Cheers,

Brandon
