The Linux System | History of Linux | Linux History

As a beginner in the operating system, it can be difficult for you to choose the best operating system to continue your operating system journey.  In this tutorial, we’ll talk about the history of the Linux system.

Simply as we know that Linux is a version of UNIX that has gained popularity in recent years. In below I am going to describe the history of LINUX.

History of LINUX

As we know that the Linux looks like other UNIX system, indeed, UNIX compatibility has been a major design goal of the Linux project. However, Linux is much younger than most UNIX system. Its development began in 1991, when a Finnish student, Linux Trovalds, wrote and christened Linux, a small but self-contained kernel for the 80386 processor, the first true 32-bit processor in Intel’s range of PC-compatible CPUs.

In early in its development, the code of the Linux source was made available free on the internet. As a result, the history of the Linux has been one of collaboration by many operating system users from all around the whole world, corresponding almost exclusively over the internet.

From an initial kernel (central part of an operating system) that partially implemented a small subset of the UNIX system services, the Linux system has grown to include much UNIX functionality.

Linux development revolved largely around the central operating-system kernel- the core, privileged executive that manages all system resources and that interacts directly with the computer hardware in its early days.

We need much more than this kernel to control a full an operating system, really. That is useful to make the distinction b\w the Linux kernel and a Linux system. It is an entirely original piece of software developed from scratch by the Linux community.

As we know that the position of Linux today in world, includes a multitude of components, some written from scratch, others borrowed from other development projects, and still others created in collaboration with other teams.

The basic Linux system is a standard environment for application and user programming, but it does not enforce any standard means of managing the available functionally as a whole. As Linux has matured, a need has arisen for another layer of functionally on top of the Linux system. Now Linux has been met by different-different Linux distribution.

The distribution of the Linux system includes all the standard components of the Linux system, plus a set of administrative tools to simplified the initial installation and subsequent upgrading of Linux and need to managing installation and removing of the other packages on your operating system. A modern distribution also typically includes tools for management of file systems, creation and management of user accounts, administration of networks, web browser, word processors, and so on.

This is not too much in next tutorial I will describe more and more about Linux. If you like this
