Operating System (OS)
An operating system is the software that directly manages a system’s hardware and resources, like CPU, memory, and storage.
Linux is an open-source, community-driven operating system (OS) that is built on the Unix foundation. It offers compatibility across various computer platforms, such as x86, ARM, and SPARC, and extends its support to computers, servers, mainframes, mobile devices, and embedded systems. With its widespread adoption, Linux has become one of the most extensively supported operating systems available.
