Linux is an operating system, like Windows or Mac OS X. Aside from being a desktop OS, Linux can also be found in some other devices – such as the Google Android Dev Phone, the Sony Reader, the HP Mini 1000 and even the Sony Bravia TV and the Yamaha Motif Keyboard. What sets Linux apart from the more popular operating systems is that it’s free to use and offers a low-cost operating system.

Linux also runs on many computer models compared to Windows as it is a cross platform operating system. It also has a significant multiple-user feature, where more than one user can log in at the same time. Because of this, it is the leading operating system on servers and other big systems.
