What is Linux?

Linux is a free and open-source operating system first developed by Linus Torvalds, available under the GNU General Public License. An operating system is a software that enables communication between hardware and software.

The term “Linux” can mean two things:

Linux is NOT the complete OS, but only the kernel. Linux distributions take the Linux kernel and combine it with other free software to create a complete operating system functional for the end user such as Ubuntu for example.

There are hundreds of Linux Distro to choose from.

Linux is everywhere, from servers and smartphones to desktop PCs we all use at home, it is the engine behind most smart computer devices. The Android phone that you are using runs a Linux kernel.
