Introductuion to Linux Operating system

Linux is Unix like operating system. The name Linux was used because of it is the combination of Linus Torvalds (Creator of Linux kernel).

Basically Linux is not another OS. It is a network. Most of the people didn’t like to use Linux as Desktop OS. Because of its complexity. But truly it is not a complex operating system. Reason for the complex thing is, basically Linux was only used by scientists and programmers at the year of 1994. Microsoft is made both GUI and CLI based OS. But in Linux, it’s only CLI way to communicate PC (At the year of 90’s). So the people moves to MS. Nowadays Linux is offers both GUI and CLI. One more delicious thing is, it is very user friendly than MS. Yes!! It is true. After coming up Ubuntu, the ‘user friendly’ thing is acceptable for Linux. We will discuss in feature, why Linux is more user friendly operating system than Windows operating system.
