NOT AN OPERATING SYSTEM!!!!!!!!

Linux is a KERNEL, NOT AN OPERATING SYSTEM started by Linus Torvalds in 1991 at University of Helsinki in Finland. Linux was at first just a hobby for Linus. Linux is free software.

It just so happened that just when Linux was getting usable, GNU had everything it needed except a kernel. Thus, people started using Linux with GNU to make a completely free UNIX-like operating system called GNU/Linux.

Today Linux and GNU/Linux have come a long way from the early 1990's, although they're still mostly used by geeks.
Linux is at version 2.6.xx as of mid 2005.

A method of torturing a person who is just trying to learn more about computers. The folks who program this system assume that you know everything about computers, and will hurl insults at you is you even dare to ask them a question relating to running the OS.
Linux is NOT an efficient, user-friendly operating system. It is a nightmare disguised as a blessing.

A program that provides the classic setup for a monopoply: undersell and demonize your competition, then raise prices sharply when there are no other alternatives.
You soon will not be allowed to use a computer if you are not using Linux.
