Computer Term

1. Linux

Pronounced "lihnuks," this is a Unix-based operating system created by Linus Torvalds. His reason for developing it was that he wasn't happy with the currently available options in Unix. So he did what anybody else would do, and created his own operating system. He freely distributed his OS, which helped it gain popularity. Today, Linux is used by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Computer hobbyists (a.k.a. geeks) love it because it is very customizable and you can actually add your own code to the operating system. Linux is also the OS of choice for many Web hosting companies because it is far cheaper to set up and maintain than a Windows-based server. The current supported hardware platforms for Linux software are Intel, PowerPC, DEC Alpha, Sun Sparc, and Motorola.
