Linux is a Free and Open Source Operating System kernel. The project was originally started by Linus Torvalds and now has a very large community of developers and users all around the world. Linux is used in an extremely wide variety of devices such as industrial embedded systems, appliances, cell phones, desktop systems, and mainframe servers. Unix-like operating systems utilizing the Linux kernel are loosely referred to as Linux systems. Most Linux systems are a combination of the Linux kernel, GNU Utilities, and other software libraries and Open Source projects. These systems are also referred to as GNU/Linux to show the combination of the Linux kernel and GNU project.
