Linux is an open source operating system that interfaces between computer software and hardware. Linux OS consists of a Linux kernel that contains all the required components of a fully functioning operating system. The Linux OS consists of two execution modes — user mode and kernel mode — with a number of privileges. Linux OS is similar to other operating systems, such as Windows, OS X, or iOS, in graphical user interface and software applications like word processing applications. Linux OS is an open source software that makes the code used to build Linux free and available to the public to view, edit, and distribute. Linux OS is distributed to leading players in the Linux Operating System Market for various devices, such as workstations, desktops, and servers. The vendors also give support for the Linux-based OS that they distribute.
Key Growth Drivers of Linux Operating System Market
Linux is an open-source operating system that edges between the computer software and hardware. Linux OS is similar to other operating systems such as OS X, Windows, or iOS in terms of graphical user interface and software applications, including word processing applications.
