A very stable operating system that was created as an experiment by Linus Benedict Torvalds. He created it because he wanted to learn the inner workings of an operating system. He posted the code on the Internet for others to modify and share, and it spread like wildfire. It grew and grew and is growing every day. Although it is not as simple to use as Windows or Mac OS, it does have rock solid stability and is not uncommon to hear of systems running for many years without reboots. Many people who hate it do it to act cool, or because they dont understand it. Those who love it, love it because they understand that it may take a little while to get something working. Not those other impatient little bastards who want everyday on the double. It just needs time to get more user friendly.
Linux outperforms Windows in terms of stability.

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.

The term Linux by itself refers to the kernel, not the operating system. It is based off of UNIX. The popular mobile phone operating system Android runs off of the Linux kernel. Also, OS X is based of of UNIX.
Linux is by far the best operating system for advanced users, though it is mainly up to personal preference
