What is OS (operating system)?
The operating system is the Software on which we run application software. I am defining OS for who are not familiar with term operating system. The examples of the operating system are Windows of Microsoft, Apple’s Macintosh, Linux and Android by Google. The non-technical persons may be familiar with the two operating systems only namely Windows and Macintosh. But today I will tell you that there are hundreds of OS available free over the internet which you can use. So, I will be telling you about the Linux which is free and easily usable. And even we need not installing the Linux on the computer to use; it is usable via USB (pen drive). We can actually use Linux without installing.

Linux was developed was Linus Torvalds. He made it possible to have an operating system which can be used free of cost. We pay many dollars for Mackintosh and Windows operating system just because we are used to with these operating systems. As Linux is free so is widely used by developers as they don’t want to pay for it. So they use a Linux according to their choice. As you can also use Linux by just downloading the OS and use it without installing. There are many Linux versions available which even many developers don’t know because of its changeable nature.
