Linux is a clone of the operating system Unix, written from scratch by Linus Torvalds with assistance from a loosely-knit team of hackers across the Net. It aims towards POSIX and Single UNIX Specification 🔗 compliance.
It has all the features you would expect in a modern fully-fledged Unix, including true multitasking, virtual memory, shared libraries, demand loading, shared copy-on-write executables, proper memory management, and multistack networking including IPv4 and IPv6.
Technically Linux is an Operating System Kernel, for a fully fledged Operating System you need one of the many Open Source (or Neo-Proprietary) 'Distributions' of Linux. SiriUS' favorite Distro is 'Debian' Linux.
