What is Linux?

Linux is an complete operating system like Windows. Linux is an open operating system and that means it is free. Linux runs on thousands of hardware devices. A really cool thing about Linux is the it was built to enable multiple users to access the system simultaneously. To protect the individual user's environment, every application ​, file, and directory, is given a set of read, write, and execute permissions that define who can access them.

Linux has a great scalability and can run on everything from handheld devices to supercomputers. The Linux desktop menus, icons, windows, and background plus more can be configured. You are able to watch videos, listen to music, view edit and store photos.

Create, and publish documents with LibreOffice a powerful office suite. LibreOffice includes several applications that make it powerful. It is a Free Open Source office suite that comes with Writer (word processing), Calc (spreadsheets), Impress (presentations), Draw (vector graphics and flowcharts), Base (databases), and Math (formula editing).
