What is Linux?

  • Linux is a computer operating system (OS) that is developed, assembled and distributed under the model of free and open-source software.

    The computer operating system is the computer program called the kernel. The kernel executes and manages the execution of other software programs, interfaces with the physical machine and manages I/O (input/output) requests from software.

    How is Linux Used

    Linux was originally developed as a free operating system for personal computers based on the Intel x86 architecture, but has since been ported to more computer hardware platforms than any other operating system.

    The Android system that is used for smartphones is built on top of the Linux kernel and has the largest installed base of all general-purpose operating systems.

    Linux is also the leading operating system on servers and large scale systems such as mainframe computers and supercomputers. Linux also works on some devices whose operating system is implemented in firmware. Examples of this include routers, video games, watches, television controllers, etc.

    "The development of Linux is one of the most prominent examples of free and open-source software collaboration. The underlying source code may be used, modified, distributed-commercially or non-commercially by anyone under licenses such as the GNU General Public License."

    What is a Distribution

    The Linux kernel is packaged with libraries, supporting utilities, applications and other programs (find, bash, etc) to form a distribution. The programs that make up a distribution may be focused on providing either a desktop or server environment. They may also focus on some specific aspect or capabilities for either desktop or servers.

    Anyone can create a distribution or a collection of Linux software for any use. Some of the most widely used Linux distributions are described below:
