    Linux is based on Unix, but it is much more user friendly.
    Nowadays Linux has become a friendly operating system with a graphic
    user interface that everybody can use.

    Most definitely not. If anything, it aims at being a lot more like
    macOS — not so much in appearance as in how it works, i.e. with
    containerized applications.

    Ubuntu is just one of many distributors using the Open Source Linux
    kernel that is contributed to by many but ultimately released through
    Linus Thorvalds who is sponsored by the Linux Foundation.

    The original idea (1991) of Linus was to make a free and gratis Unix
    style OS.

    Ubuntu, just like most of the other distributions, can and will
    fine-tune the kernel and add applications for the user and also at least
    one Graphical User Interface to make the OS accessible for people
    without in-depth knowledge of the kernel.

    Linux is family unix-like operating system based on Linux kernel.
    Linus Torvalds came to idea to create alternative unix like OS in 91' when had no money for buying Mini
    unix operating system.

    Thanks for share. The collection of these makes a nice story.


    Love the part when Linus describes project as "small hobby" or the part
    "you need to be kinda hacker to set it up" lol.
