Linux Frequently Asked Questions
What is Linux?
Linux is an operating system installed on a computer. It is equivalent to Microsoft’s Windows Server or Apple’s Mac OSX. It can be used on an end-user’s workstation (ie. The receptionist or CEO’s computer) but is more commonly found as a server platform. It can host database services, web sites, file and print services, DNS, etc. Linux is particularly well known for being very flexible, very stable and very modular. This allows for a great many different deployment options.
