  • Linux - Introduction

    Find code and diagrams at: https://www.EliTheComputerGuy.com

    Understanding Linux is a must in the modern world as a technology professional. Whether you’re building IoT projects, or simply managing websites Linux will many times be your go to operating system of choice.

    What is Linux ?

    Linux is technically simply the kernel for the GNU/Linux Operating System. GNU is what provides all the functional utility that people associate with an operating system.
    Most people don’t know how to say “GNU” and don’t care to learn so they just say “Linux”.
    In the real world technicians will talk about the distribution of Linux they are using such as “Ubuntu, CentOS, or Mint”, or just use “Linux” as a generic term for the servers they are running.
    Linux is Not Unix

    GNU stands for “GNU’s Not Unix”. GNU was replicating the look and feel of Unix and so outwardly Unix and Linux appear the same, but the actual code is different.
    Applications have to be specifically written, or ported, to make them work on either Linux or Unix.
    Why You Should Learn Linux?

    Many servers already are running Linux, and IoT projects generally use Linux for their Operating Systems.
    Linux is very good for specific tasks.
    Is Linux Hard to Learn?

    Linux is not hard to learn especially if you start with a GUI shell.
    One reason Linux has a bad reputation is that even the professional instructors of Linux can be out of touch, and make concepts overly complicated.
    capitalization does matter in Linux, so many people think they are typing the right commands, and get frustrated when things do not work how they think the should. File, file, filE and FILE are all different files.
    How to Learn Linux?

    Ubuntu is the most popular distrobution of Linux and so is a good place to start.
    You can install Linux into a Virtual Machine using VirtualBox, or put it on an old desktop/laptop.
    The best way to start learning Linux is to try it, and by starting with a Desktop Version with a GUI it will be easier.
    There is not a lot to “Linux” itself. The applications make it powerful and complex. Learn the basic tasks and then build your knowledge by testing additional applications.
    Should you switch to Linux?

    Institutional Knowledge and confidence is a big issue for corporations. If your company already employees MCSE’s there may not be a business justification to migrate to Linux.
    The applications you use will drive what Operating System you require. If all you use are SaaS products Linux may be great, but if you need to install specific applications it may be better to stick with Windows or MacOS.

  • Mac OS vs Linux | Which is better for you?

    In this video, I compare Mac OSX vs Linux and go over its history and which is truly the best for you. Before we do a straight comparison we need to understand where they come from and the differences between them.

    Timestamps:
    1:01 Linux History
    2:11 Mac OSX History
    4:35 Why Choose Linux?
    6:18 Why Choose Mac?

    History

    Unix
    To understand either OSX or Linux you need to know about UNIX. It is basically the father to many of what we see today, but there is a reason no one uses Unix anymore. In the late 80s and early 90s AT&T held the UNIX Licenses for part of the kernel and ip stack and proceed to litigate anyone that used UNIX without paying. AT&T effectively killed UNIX.

    Linux
    First off, Linux is NOT UNIX and is NOT a fork of UNIX. It originally looked and acted like UNIX but this is a common misconception. It originated from a collaboration done by Linux Torvalds with the GNU (GNU is NOT UNIX) Project (Richard Stallman from MIT) and Minix (Andrew Tanenbaum). Both these projects were coded entirely from scratch with completely free licensing. From here it has been developed from the early 90s to today.

    Mac OSX
    The first Macs from the 80s and 90s used a FAR different version than today. This kernel is nothing like OSX today. Macintosh 1 to 9 was not UNIX based and was very proprietary. I suggest watching Jobs, Pirates of Silicon Valley, or various other films to get a broad understanding of them. In 2001 Mac OS 10 was born, and it was based on UNIX or to be more specific NeXTStep which acquired in the late 90s. NeXTStep was based on BSD which used some UNIX code but in 1991 it managed to strip out all the AT&T code and also convert to Free licensing.
