What Is Linux :-
Linux is an operating system that was initially created as a
hobby by a young student, Linus Torvalds, at the University of
Helsinki in Finland. Linus had an interest in Minix, a small
UNIX system, and decided to develop a system that exceeded the
Linux is developed under the GNU General Public License and its
source code is freely available to everyone. Linux may be used
for a wide variety of purposes including networking, software
development, and as an end-user platform.
Linux is often considered an excellent, low-cost alternative to
other more expensive operating systems. Due to the very nature
of Linux’s functionality and availability, it has become quite
popular worldwide and a vast number of software programmers have
taken Linux’s source code and adapted it to meet their
At this time, there are dozens of ongoing projects for porting
Linux to various hardware configurations and purposes. Here are
10 reasons why Linux could be the best operating system for you.
A Linux Distribution has thousands of dollars worth of software
for no cost (or a couple of dollars if purchased on CD). Linux
is a complete operating system that is :-
Stable – the crash of an application is much less likely to
bring down the operating system under Linux
Reliable – Linux servers are often up for hundreds of days
compared with the regular reboots required with a Windows
system. Extremely powerful.
Comes with a complete development environment, including C,
C++, Fortran compilers, and toolkits such as Qt and scripting
languages such as Perl, Awk and sed. A C compiler for Windows
alone would set you back hundreds of dollars.
Excellent networking facilities: allowing you to share CPUs,
share modems etc; all of which are not included or available
with Windows 95 The ideal environment to run servers such as a
web server (e.g. Apache), or an FTP server.
A wide variety of commercial software is available if the free
software doesn’t satisfy your needs.
An operating system that is easily upgradeable. After any
length of time a typical installation of Windows and software
gets into a complete mess. Often the only way to clear out all
the debris is to reformat the hard disk and start again. Linux,
however, is much better for maintaining the system.
Supports multiple processors as standard.
True multi-tasking; the ability to run more than one program at
the same time.
Excellent window systems called X; the equivalent of Windows
but much more flexible.
Linux holds a major share as a server operating system and has
the largest market share for the entire Internet. It is also
increasingly popular on the desktop as well. Internet Presence
Division provides value-added service and support on all
versions of Linux.
