Linux


What is Linux?

Linux is a freely distributed, open-source operating system. This means that the source code used to make the operating system is made public for anyone to view, unlike Microsoft Windows. It is very much like the UNIX operating system, and is suited for use by people with quite a bit of computer knowledge. Linux is also more reliable than Windows NT. This makes Linux the ideal operating system for network servers where reliability is crucial.
However, Linux is not for everyone. Inexperienced computer users may have difficulties installing and using Linux. This is because Linux is not as user-friendly as Microsoft Windows. Linux also does not support a wide range of hardware, so if you have Microsoft Windows installed now and are thinking about switching to Linux, make sure all of your hardware is compatible with Linux. Even advanced computer users have problems getting Linux to work with their computer hardware.
 
Currently, I have installed and been evaluating RedHat Linux 8.0.
