Chapter 1. What is Linux?

We will start with an overview of how Linux became the operating system it is today. We will discuss past and future development and take a closer look at the advantages and disadvantages of this system. We will talk about distributions, about Open Source in general and try to explain a little something about GNU.

  • What is Linux?

  • Where and how did Linux start?

  • Isn't Linux that system where everything is done in text mode?

  • Does Linux have a future or is it just hype?

  • What are the advantages of using Linux?

  • What are the disadvantages?

  • What kinds of Linux are there and how do I choose the one that fits me?
