  • Unix vs Linux

    Unix was started by Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie and some other engineers including Brian Kernighan back in the early 1970s. It has a long and illustrious history. But then Linux came along and things changed. How is Linux different to Unix? Are they the same thing? Please, let me explain!

  • Is Linux an OS, a kernel or both? (Linux vs GNU/Linux)

    The word "Linux" has entered into the English language meaning a complete Unix-like operating system based on the Linux kernel, which was originally written by Linus Torvalds.

    However there are people that claim that Linux is *just* a kernel, and not a full OS. People who make such distinctions often insist on using the GNU/Linux moniker.

    So, is Linux an OS, a kernel or both? Should we call it Linux or GNU/Linux?

  • Which Linux Distro for Beginners?

    A common question for Linux beginners is, "Which distro should I start with?" The answer really depends upon what you want to do with Linux. Do you want to set up a Linux desktop or Linux workstation? Do you want to learn enterprise Linux server administration? Or, do you want to learn something that can be used for cloud deployments? The answer to which Linux distro you should learn will depend upon your desired use-case secenario. For Linux desktops, there's a whole range of choices, depending upon your own tastes. For Linux servers and Linux cloud deployments, your choices are much narrower.

    Hopefully, this will help you choose the best linux distro for beginners.

  • Seven Linux Distros

    Linux distro comparison of Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Manjaro, Slacko Puppy, Lubuntu, Zorin OS, and Debian Jessie with the Raspberry Pi Desktop!

    All distros were downloaded as an ISO image and written to USB media (for testing and/or full installation) using Etcher, which is available from: https://etcher.io/

    The different distros featured in this video can be obtained from the following links. Please note that all of the below are provided in good faith, and that testing and/or installing a new operating system should be done with care. Testing a distro from a USB drive should not delete files or otherwise damage your computer. However, actually installing a new operating system will replace your existing one unless you decide to dual boot, and this can cause issues . . .

    Ubuntu: https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

    Debian Jessie with Raspberry Pi Desktop: https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspberry-pi-desktop/

    Manjaro: https://manjaro.org/get-manjaro/
