open-source operating system, meaning that you may freely use and freely distribute it. Originally developed in 1991 by Finnish Programmer Linus Torvalds, Linux is an exceptionally robust and reliable kernel, which combined with the GNU system is most commonly used for Internet servers, mobile phones, and tablets (e.g. Android). Additionally, the use of GNU/Linux as an alternative operating system for personal computers has also been growing over the years, with several million users having already discovered the benefits of it.
