"About Linux
Linux is a Unix like operating system, originally developed and conceived by Linus Torvalds. Developers around the world are now developing Linux under the GNU (General Public License). The GNU license allows anyone to change and distribute the Linux kernel, as long as their changes are freely available to others. For more info about the GNU, head on over to The GNU WebSite. Today, Linux is one of the fastest growing and most rapidly changing operating systems."

"Why Linux
Linux offers users more flexibility and stability over Windows. Most Windows users are tired of the Blue Screen of Death that Windows has. Many people detour away from Linux, because they think it is command line (similar to Unix and Dos), or because they think it has a bad GUI (Graphical User Interface, this is basically what you see on your screen, like desktops, icons, and links.)."
