The Linux operating system is one of the most widely used OS, and it was created to provide a free or low-cost operating system for personal computer users. It earned a reputation for being a high-performing and efficient system. This is a fairly comprehensive operating system that includes a graphical user interface (GUI), TCP/IP, the Emacs editor, and the X Window System, among other features. Linus Torvalds published Linux on September 17, 1991, and it was written in the C programming language.
Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Red Hat Linux, SUSE Linux, Gentoo, Kali Linux, and Linux Mint are some of the finest Linux distributions. Because of features such as multiuser operating system management, multitasking paradigm, multiprogramming concepts, and virtual memory, Linux is a very popular operating system today. Because of security concerns and positive feedback from the user community, as well as firms like Canonical, many corporations and individuals utilise Linux for their servers. Apart from that, Linux is also used in mobile devices, smart TVs, and so on.
