INTRODUCTION Red Hat = Enterprise Linux What is Linux? Linux is an open-source operating system based on the UNIX kernel. Linux runs on more hardware platforms than any other operating system and can also be found in embedded systems such as cell-phones and tablets (Android), routers, automation controls, and televisions. Many distributions of Linux are free to download and install such as Debian, SUSE, Ubuntu, and GNOME. What is Open-Source? Open-source software is computer software who’s source code is made available and licensed to anyone to freely study, change, or distribute. Open-source licenses grant licensees the right to copy, modify, and redistribute the source code.
