Erlang is a programming language.  OTP is an implementation of
an erlang virtual machine and a collection of libraries which 
implement a framework for building fault tolerant, distributed
applications.

So what you would think of as Erlang, the software package 
which you download at www.erlang.org (i.e. otp_src_R11B-5), is
in fact Erlang/OTP.

Jungerl contains another, sometimes partially overlapping, 
collection of libraries, but not a virtual machine.

Indeed it does.
