Chapter 2. Overview of a Linux System
"God saw everything that he
had made, and saw that it was very good. " -- Bible
King James Version. Genesis 1:31
This chapter gives an overview of a Linux system. First,
the major services provided by the operating system are described.
Then, the programs that implement these services are described
with a considerable lack of detail. The purpose of this chapter
is to give an understanding of the system as a whole, so that
each part is described in detail elsewhere.
