Linux has been around since the mid-‘90s and has since reached a user-base that spans industries and continents. For those in the know, you understand that Linux is everywhere. It is on your phones, in your cars, in your refrigerators, your Roku devices. It runs most of the Internet, the supercomputers making scientific breakthroughs, and the world\’s stock exchanges. However, before Linux became the platform to run desktops, servers, and embedded systems across the globe, it was (and still is) one of the most reliable, secure, and worry-free operating systems available.
For those not in the know, worry not – here is all the information you need to get up to speed on the Linux platform.
Just like Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Mac OS X, Linux is an operating system. An operating system is a software that manages all of the hardware resources associated with your desktop or laptop. The operating system manages the communication between your software and your hardware. Without the operating system (often referred to as the “OS”), the software would not function.
If your computer skills are relatively necessary, stick with a newbie-friendly distribution such as Linux Mint, Ubuntu, or Deepin. If your skill set extends into the above-average range, you could go with a distribution like Debian or Fedora.Moreover, if you have pretty much mastered the craft of computer and system administration, use a distribution like Gentoo.
