"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
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.)."
