    Long story short, the governor (at least how I understand it) is a basic set of instructions telling the kernel how to interact/operate with the hardware/software of the device.

    the governor is the way the kernel scales the cpu frequency and depending how optimized it is the tablet can be laggy or not , consume more power or not, etc.... can be set with setcpu like the frequency...

    This maybe another dumb question: (sorry, newbie to Android)

    What's the difference between KERNEL and ROM?

    I have my A500 Tablet Just arrived last night

    Android Version 3.0.1
    Kernel version 2.6.36.3-00001-g9b3ce2b
    Build Number Acer_A500_1.104.02_COM_GEN1.

    Planning to have it update to the latest version as soon as it is available.

    Another Question: How will I know my A500's kernel?

    Check this thread: A Dummies Guide to Android Terminology & Lingo

    For your last question, I recommend CPU Spy from the market. It's simple and FREE. You'll know what the CPU is doing and what kernel you're running.
