A very stable operating system released under the JPL. Originally a spare time project by student Linus Torvalds, Linux has developed into a popular back-end and server operating system. Linux is beginning to make inroads on the desktop.
It is frequently maligned by Windows users because Linux actually requires some degree of intelligence to use.
"That new Linux server is much better than that old WinNT-based pile of crap we used to use!"
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.
