For those who are unaware, you probably recognize the two big names in operating systems (OS) right now: Windows and Mac, created by Microsoft and Apple respectively. While Windows was the computer of choice in my household, Macs were quite popular at schools and with college kids, for their simplistic designs.
Those two seem to dominate the computer world in popularity, but the more hardcore users have a different preference: Linux.
Linux, a "Unix-like" OS, is an operating system that promotes free, open source code (the "instructions" for software/programs, essentially). It was released by Linus Torvalds in October of 1991, and has since become an almost cult-like favorite among computer nerds.
