“It’s showing up on bumper stickers. In the local discount
warehouse chains, and in conversations throughout Silicon Valley.
It’s the lone programmer’s daydream come true – the freeware Unix
operating system called LINUX.”

“It is a cooperatively developed, POSIX-oriented, multi-user,
multi-tasking operating system with source code freely available to
all users, and is maintained as freely distributable software from
many sites on the Internet. Unlike binary only operating sytsems
that restrict access to the source code, Linux benefits from a
worldwide community of highly experienced programmers and
technically savvy academics who have the access to enhance and
improve the system.”
