What is Linux?
Please note that Linux is an operating system that usually uses the Linux kernel as its core. Even Linux began to be used in applications to other supporting modules.
This is so that Linux can function properly like operating systems in general. Basically this system also has a free nature that is easy to use. In fact, this makes it easier for you to be used to be developed by various parties for free or at no cost at all.

At that time there was already an operating system called Unix and Dos, now that name has changed to Windows. Then the Linux operating system must be closed and one solution is to buy it. Then suddenly a group of developers came to create a group called GNU. GNU is here as a place to build systems to applications that are already in use. So after all the things are done then the next thing that needs to be made is the kernel. The kernel can be interpreted as the heart and core of each open source operating system. At the end of 1991 there was a student majoring in computer science from the University of Helsinki. Then the student again wrote an operating system that could be useful for the pc.
Linux is an operating system that has a free and open source license so it is very easy to develop. You can even distribute it for free and without spending a lot of money.
Even since the beginning of its creation, Linux has been used as an internet network infrastructure. In addition, infrastructure can also be used for security, it can also be used for industrial machines. There are lots of devices, ranging from router switches, servers, super computers, industrial machines, IoT, CCTV, drones. In addition, there are also spaceships to various other devices.
As for the various advantages, because Linux is free, powerful, and used by various industries. If in the past Linux was installed on the back, now it has been installed on the end user device or can be called the end user. Now must be familiar, right, with linux?
