Welcome and congratulations for visiting our Linux Unix Community website.

Linux PenguinThe Linux computer operating system was originally developed for personal computers based on the Intel x86 architecture, but has since been ported to more platforms than any other OS. Because of the dominance of the Linux-based Android on smartphones, Linux also has the largest installed base of all general-purpose operating systems Although Linux is only used by a small percentage of desktop computers, the Chromebook, which runs the Linux kernel-based Chrome OS, dominates the US K–12 education market and represents nearly 20 percent of lower priced notebook sales in the US. Linux is the leading operating system on servers, leads other robust systems such as mainframe computers, and is the only operating system that is used on TOP500 supercomputers.
