The Essentials Of Linux & Windows – Welcome to a blog about Linux!
Ok…so it’s a blog about Linux and the first thing you might ask (if you’re like me) is “What the heck is that?”
Linux is a software program.
And…that’s all I know. So although my title is about linux, I’m probably better able to talk about a Linx…which is the linux without U.
How crazy is that people use computers everyday but we lack the knowledge of what the internet is made of or what most programs are made out of.
So, in this blog, my goal will be to explore different software’s that are used online and how they can help you make the most of your online experience. A little history and a little user advice and both you (the reader) and I (the author) will hopefully expand our computer base knowledge.
I will not stick to just talking about software though. I will also talk about hardware because you need it in order to run software in the first place.
So..if you are ignorant to Linux, like me, here’s a basic run down of what it is:
Basically, Linux is an operating system. It’s a program (software) that is on a computer which allows the main operator to access devices and make them perform a specific function.
Basically Linux is very much like Windows and OSX, but it is not the limousine of operating systems.
Linux is actually larger. It helps to power the New York Stock Exchange, mobile phones and many other devices. As an example, here is a website that is powered by Linux.
Explained in these terms, Linux is very similar to other operating systems, such as Windows and OS X.
Linux is made in a collaborative effort and no one person can be solely responsible for its creation or support. Everyone involved in development of Linux share costs and research.
