About Linux

Okay for my computer tech class final exam, part of it we were supposed to write about Windows Vista. I suggested to the teacher we write about something else because there isn't too much we can do about it so he said well since some of you will take the course next year and it touches on Linux, you can write an overview about that. I said, freakin' sweet. So I turned around and wrote a few paragraphs of what I knew off the top of my head while the rest of my class struggled because they all new zilch. So here, I present to you my writeup;

Linux is an operating system similar to Windows. It was created by a Finnish software engineer by the name of Linus Torvalds during his college years in the early 1990s. It is an open source operating system that is free to be modified and improved by any programmer who wishes to make changes to the code. Linux was derived from a kernel and opearting system called Minix. It was developed to be a Unix based operating system, that ran on the PC. Linus now coordinates the kernel in Linux. He organizes what goes into each release, when it will be released and more. Similar to a kernel in Windows, the Linux kernel contains all the instructions for the computer to function. It also contains drivers for any hardware to be used by the computer. Linux is well known among computer geeks as a stable operating system and has been widely accepted as such.

First one!

Alright I just joined this site and it seems pretty cool. I shall post as often as I can think of something Linux related to write about. Not that anyone will care or even read it but I will anyway, just because I can. Go me!
