    Linux is a Unix-like operating system, originally designed by Linus Torvalds, for the x86 platform. It has since been ported to Alpha, Macintosh, and other platforms. It is freely available via WWW or ftp. Can also be purchased on CDROM at a minimal cost.


    The Linux operating system comes in different distributions. Popular distributions include Slackware, Debian, SUSE, Red Hat, and many more. Do NOT ask us what the "best" distribution is, any of the major dists should be fine for you to try. Just avoid anything that runs from a windows (UMSDOS) partition.

    The main differences between the various distributions are the formats of the software packages, the package maintenance programs, and minor directory structure changes.
