What is Linux?
Linux is a free Unix-type operating system originally created by Linus Torvalds with the assistance of developers around the world. It is high leval Security supporting operating system. And no risk of virous attack. It’s a command line interface supporting os. Developed under the GNU General Public License , the source code for Linux is freely available to everyone which is causing a major evolution in the world of computers. It outperforms other operating systems on similar hardware and is available on architectures ranging from a PDA to supercomputers.
Linux and Open Source technologies have become the standard platform of choice for Information Technology system deployment. Over seventy percent of the Internet is running on Open Source technologies and international vendors such as Novell and IBM are deploying Linux and Open Source.
Moving to the Linux platform does not require abandoning existing investments in Microsoft Windows applications and infrastructure. Linux runs on the same hardware and can run many of the Microsoft Windows applications, like Open Office, mozilla fairfox, lotus ,games etc. What makes this even more amazing is that Linux and Open Source applications are freely available to anyone who wishes to download them.
The big question for many corporate IT professionals and developers is “Why would I move from Windows to Linux?” Windows is well established in the enterprise computing space and applications currently deployed on Windows may be running just fine in their organization.
However, many organizations are migrating from Windows and UNIX to the OSS Linux platform. They are moving in order to gain better business value, a greater choice of solutions, and richer capabilities for addressing their enterprise computing needs and abilities. This is what no proprietary vendor can do…
1. They don’t have the hugely productive environment of KDE to program in.
2. They can’t run development crews of the Open Source Community size without considerable investment.
3. They can’t gather the input of thousands of users.
4. They can’t design in such an open fashion as to remove all their hooks.
