Linux is a free operating system, which comes under the GNU GPL license. It can be freely used on all products or applications which you develop free of cost. Linux is everywhere, which means it spreads almost all over the world. In your daily life, you are communicating with Linux servers, because all major internet sites such as Facebook and Google are using Linux servers. In addition, most modern televisions, Android mobiles run on Linux. At the root of it, Linux is free software used to control the desktop, laptop, supercomputers, mobile devices, networking equipment, airplanes and automobiles and so on. More significantly, viruses are less of a threat on Linux. With a slight Linux knowledge and an inexpensive computer, you can create tiny gadgets at home.
