Since the introduction of Linux it has evolved to be experienced with such big companies as IBM. It is an open source development that is increasing use working as a server operating system. Open source indicates that anyone has the source code available to them.
The system was developed in 1991 by Linus Torvalds. He was a University of Helsinki student in Finland. It was an individual effort and he put it on the internet for free use. This was the first step that led Linux to become widely popular. This has increased due to the utilities that are available free from the internet. What are some sources that Linux used to reach such wide spread use. These include the two following:
*Free Software Foundation
Torvalds was like many in the 1990s that were eager to learn all they could about computer science. His desire to learn more lead him to read books about it for example. It ultimately helped him to developing Linux and releasing it for others to use. He continued his work and continued to evolve the Linux operating system. It has become one of the most popular and used computer operating systems.
Linux is considered a stronger operating system than even some of the most popular systems. This is because it protects each task separately, as one example.
