is a computer operating system which is based on free and open source software.

Although many different varieties of Linux exist, all are Unix-like and based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel created in 1992 by Linus Torvalds.

a 21-year-old student at the University of Helsinki, Finland . best known for having initiated the development of the Linux kernel. started working on some simple ideas for an operating system. At first, hes doing (free) operating system and his starting to get ready. He later became the chief architect of the Linux kernel, and now acts as the project's coordinator. He also created the revision control system Git.

is a multitasking, multi-user computer operating system originally developed in 1969 by a group of AT&T employees at Bell Labs, including Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie, Brian Kernighan, Douglas McIlroy, and Joe Ossanna. Unix was re-written in the programming language C by Dennis Ritchie.

AT&T- is an American multinational telecommunications corporation. It is the largest provider of mobile telephony and fixed telephony in the United States and is also a provider of broadband and subscription television services.

is a Unix-like computer operating system developed by the GNU project , aiming to be a complete unixcompatible software system.

GNU is a corecursive acronym for "GNU's Not Unix!", chosen because GNU's design is Unix-like, but differs from Unix by being free software and containing no Unix code.

Richard Stallman started the Free Software Foundation and wrote the GNU General Public License in 1989.

is a Unix operating system derivative developed and distributed by the Computer Systems Research Group (CSRG) of the University of California, Berkeley. BSD has been considered a branch of UNIX because it shared the initial codebase and design with the original AT&T UNIX operating system. The earliest distributions of Unix from Bell Labs in the 1970s included the source code to the operating system, allowing researchers at universities to modify and extend Unix


Mini-Unix. is a Unix-like computer operating system based on a microkernel architecture created by Andrew S. Tanenbaum for educational purposes.

Torvalds began the development of the Linux kernel on MINIX, and applications written for MINIX were also used on Linux. Later Linux matured and it became possible for Linux to be developed under itself.

The Linux kernel is an operating system kernel used by the Linux family of Unixlike operating systems. It is one of the most prominent examples of free and open source software.
Today, Linux distributions are used in every domain, from embedded systems to supercomputers and have secured a place in server installations often using the popular LAMP application stack. The federal government of Brazil is well known for its support for Linux. They have also gained popularity with various local and national governments.
