What is Linux?

As Linux is highly customizable and developer friendly It runs most of the Internet,from servers to supercomputers, PC’s to modern toys, making scientific breakthroughs, and much more pretty interesting right? But before Linux became the platform to run desktops, servers, and embedded systems across the globe, it was (and still is) one of the most reliable, secure, and worry-free operating systems available and is still one of the best operating system through its disrtro like Ubuntu, Parrot Os, Kali linux and much more.

Just like Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Mac OS X, Linux is an operating system. An highly customizable free operating system is software that manages all of the hardware resources associated with your desktop or laptop. Not only its just free or highly customizable it makes old computers work fast too.

How does Linux differ from other operating systems?

In many ways, Linux is similar to other operating systems you may have used before, such as Windows, OS X, or iOS. Like other operating systems, Linux has a graphical interface, and types of software you are accustomed to using on other operating systems, such as word processing applications, have Linux equivalents. In many cases, the software’s creator may have made a Linux version of the same program you use on other systems. If you can use a computer or other electronic device, you can use Linux.

But Linux also is different from other operating systems in many important ways. First, and perhaps most importantly, Linux is open source software. The code used to create Linux is free and available to the public to view, edit, and—for users with the appropriate skills—to contribute to.

Linux is also different in that, although the core pieces of the Linux operating system are generally common, there are many distributions of Linux, which include different software options. This means that Linux is incredibly customizable, because not just applications, such as word processors and web browsers, can be swapped out. Linux users also can choose core components, such as which system displays graphics, and other user-interface components.

Feeling this thing interesting? Why don’t you give it a try, you an simply install it in a bootable drive.
