Linux Introduction

Introduction

Linux is a computer operating system that was created as a research project by Linus Torvalds. There’s a lot to learn about Linux’s quick progress, but suffice it to say, it’s come a long way in a decade.

Linux operates on a variety of hardware platforms, including Intel, Mac, Sun, Dec Alpha, and others.

Linux Features

  • Linux is a full-featured, 32-bit multi-user/multi-tasking OS.
  • Linux adheres to the common (POSIX) standards for UNIX.
  • Native TCP/IP support.
  • A mature X Windows GUI interface.
  • Complete development environment. C, C++, Java, editors, version control systems.
  • Open Source.

Why Linux?

To mention a few, Linux may be used as a web, file, smb (Windows NT), Novell, printer, ftp, mail, SQL, masquerade, firewall, and POP server.

It can be used as a graphics, C, C++, Java, Perl, Python, SQL, audio, video, and documentation workstation, among other things.

Linux is an excellent choice for developers that require a solid and dependable platform with open source code. Although Linux provides various GUI software development interfaces, it is not an ideal system for beginner developers who desire a simple GUI interface to a programming language. Linux is ideal as a workstation, and it has a lot of customized capabilities that no other platform has. It’s a useful platform for dedicated workstations with limited functions, such as those used in educational or laboratory settings.

It might not be the best workstation for beginners who seek a universal WYSIWYG interface that they can customize right away. Other systems are able to meet this need. Even so, Linux is becoming more user-friendly on a daily basis. It’s only a matter of time before everyone can use Linux.
