What’s that?

Linux is an open-source UNIX-like operating system for computers with 32- and 64-bit architecture, especially for IBM compatible PC’s (since i386) but also for Apple™-Computers and Alpha-, Sparc- or (most popular in the smartphone market) ARM-based Machines.




More explanations?

There are many English pages about Linux in the web explaining all the advantages of using Linux and open-source-software, which need not be repeated here. To start have a look at the appropriate Wikipedia-Page.



Then – if you are more interested – you may have a look at the pages of some Linux-Distributions. I prefer Debian, but as a newby you may want to have a look at (K)Ubuntu as well.
