Extract from Issue 112: “Linux is an operating system, like Microsoft Windows or Mac OSX, that controls the programs and hardware on your computer. It is completely free of charge and open source – anyone can download the programming code behind it and make modifications. With thousands of people around the world improving it, Linux is very powerful, flexible and reliable. Huge multinational companies use it every day – the likes of Google and Amazon depend on it.”
