Linux is a Unix-like and mostly POSIX-compliant computer operating system (OS) assembled under the model of free and open-source software development and distribution. This operating system (OS) is one example of the development of free software and primary open source. Like the free software and other open source in general, the Linux source code can be modified, used and redistributed freely by anyone.
This operating system has long been known for its use in servers, and is supported by a well-known computer companies such as Intel, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Novell, Oracle Corporation, Red Hat, and Sun Microsystems. Linux is used as the operating system in various types of computer hardware, including desktop computers, supercomputers, and embedded systems such as electronic book readers, video game systems (PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and XBox), mobile phones and routers.
Information technology observers believe the success of this operating system because Linux does not depend on the vendor (vendor independence), low operating cost and high compatibility compared to non-free version of UNIX, as well as the safety and stability were high compared to other operating systems such as Microsoft Windows. These traits also be evidence of the advantages of the development model of open source software (open source software).
