Linux is a family of free open-source operating systems based on the Linux kernel designed by Linus Torvalds and first released on 1991-09-17. Popular operating systems built around the Linux kernel include Ubuntu, Fedora, Gentoo, Debian, and Mint, but there are hundreds of others.
My familiarity of Linux systems is limited because I use Windows for my home and work computers. I usually only use Linux-based operating systems when I do maintenance on my Web server, but, because Linux is so stable, it's rarely needed.
This is Linux software that is important to me.

I haven't really used Linux enough to give it a proper review.
