Pre-University Paper from the year 2015 in the subject Computer Science - Software, , language: English, abstract: When we hear the name „Linux“ we usually think about an operating system for nerds and other people with too much free time. Well, that's only partially true since Linux itself isn't an operating system. Linux is a core for operating systems which are built around it.The history of Linux dates back to the early nineties when Linus Torvalds, a student of computer science and a member of the Swedish minority of Finland started to write his own little operating system core just for fun. Later he mentioned this operating system core on a newsgroup and he also added the possibility of releasing it under the GPL – eventually he did so.This paper examines and compares technical aspects as well as everyday use and of Linux and Microsoft Windows.
