What is Linux
Linux is a computer operating system family, and one of the most prominent examples of free software and open source development. Its underlying source code can be modified, used, and redistributed by anyone, freely.
What Linux does
Predominantly known for its use in servers, Linux can also be used as an operating system for a wider variety of computer hardware than any other operating system there is, including desktop computers, supercomputers, mainframes, and embedded devices such as cellphones. Linux is packaged for different uses in Linux distributions known as Distros.
Our Goal
The goal of this wiki is to bring together as much information that will assist users on all levels to understand and use Linux. Linux Wikia aims to provide a resource that is distinct, by giving significantly different versions of the same product their own article, or the inclusion of historical information and distros that might still be useful. If you are interested in this project, please feel free to join us in bringing yours and others knowledge of the most versatile Operating System there is to the public
