What is Linux?
Friends, as I just told you that Linux is a computer operating system, like Microsoft’s Windows. But it is open source OS i.e. available free. It does not require a license like Windows.
There is no problem of piracy with Linux as it is a free OS. It does not require anti-virus. Actually, it is a kind of movement, against the commercialization of knowledge. Since most of the computer functions are Windows based, people hesitate to use Linux.
To use it, you will need to know some basics. Linux has no office, no company or person owns it. Programmers around the world contribute to this.
Who invented Linux?
In the history of the world, this type of movement has never happened. Andy Tenenbaum is a professor of computer science in Amsterdam. He wrote a program called Minix. There were some shortcomings in this.
Linus Torvald, a computer science student at Helsinki University in Finland, wrote a program to address the shortage of minics, later called ‘Unix of Linus’ or Linux for short.
His first core or Karnal was posted on the Internet in 1991. By then Richard Stallman’s ‘GNU’ project had started. Linus Torvald took many programs from this in his Linux. Therefore Richard Stallman says that it should be called ‘GNU-Linux’. However, this name probably did not work due to its length.
Money cannot be used for Linux software, but that does not mean that it cannot be made. Many companies are making money by serving on it and running. The main ones are Red Hat and Suce (Nouvel).
