Linux is a computer operating system, which at one point in time was only for advanced computer users; you know, the people who could operate a command line prompt. In modern times, Linux comes in distributions that are geared towards the entry level of computer users. Let us go over the pros of the Linux operating system.
Linux is perhaps one of the most easily modified operating systems in existence. It can be modified to suit anyones tasks, regardless of how big or small the task is. Some of the fastest computers in the world run Linux because of this. Not only is it easily modifiable, it works on a large range of computers and other computerized gadgets. Linux is often cheaper than other operating systems. Frequently, it is available free to the entry level user only requiring you to buy licenses for commercial implementations of the Linux distribution. Linux is also one of the most secure platforms in existence. Virtually no viruses exist for Linux, and those that do are patched as soon as they are found; Linux is updated for free, and has a large range of free to use software that is downloadable via the built in module installer.
