The Open Source OS Linux

Introduction

Hey, friends today I will be writing about the Open Source OS Linux. First let me tell you, anything that is available freely on internet and anyone can modify, reuse and share with anyone is called Open Source. So why Linux is an Open Source. Linux is a name that broadly denotes a family of free and open-source software operating systems (OS) built around the Linux kernel. Linux was created by Linus Torvalds as a project but it became popular and there is a big community of developers and users as well. Linux is now adopted by various developers and teams that have created their custom versions of Linux such as Linux mint, ubuntu, slitaz and more.

Linux is now everyone’s favorite as it is free of cost and available freely and easily over the internet.
