What is Linux?

What is Linux?
You have a computer. This computer is either a Desktop PC (Personal Computer) or a Laptop. This machine of yours will not work unless it has a system that operates it. That system called 'Linux'.

Another Example:
If there is car, it will never drive unless there is a driver inside. The car is your machine and the driver is Linux.

So, is this Linux? I mean, that is all?

Linus Torvalds

is a Finnish American Software Engineer who simply created the most powerful and successful software on earth, that is Linux.

Any doubt about the real power of Linux and how successful Linux is?
