Whether you know it or not you are already using Linux (the best-known and most-used open source operating system) every day. From supercomputers to smartphones, the Linux operating system is everywhere. As an operating system, Linux is a family of open source Unix-like software based on the Linux kernel - that sits underneath all of the other software on a computer, receiving requests from those programs and relaying these requests to the computer's hardware. With regard to careers, it is becoming increasingly valuable to have Linux skills rather than just knowing how to use Windows. In general, Linux is harder to manage than Windows, but offers more flexibility and configuration options.
