about linux
Linux, eh? Well, I guess it’s kinda like an operating system, but not really. It’s sort of like a software platform, but not really. I mean, it’s like the wild west of computing, where anything goes. It’s open source, so you can do whatever you want with it and make it do whatever you want. It’s like that old Wild West saying: “If you don’t like the law, make your own!” For example, say you wanted to run a web server. With Linux, you can do it. You can also use it to build your own computer or custom router. You can even turn it into a gaming system. Heck, you can even use it as a phone or a tablet. It’s really versatile. Plus, a lot of people have adopted it as their go-to operating system. According to a 2019 report, over 50% of the world’s top 1 million websites are powered by Linux. And if you’re a fan of supercomputers, you’d be interested to know that 95% of the world’s 500 fastest computers run Linux. But the most fun fact about Linux is that its mascot is a penguin. Yup, a penguin! It even has its own holiday too – it’s called “Linux Day” and it’s celebrated on August 25th.
