Linux

Since humble beginnings in 1991 as Linus Torvalds' student hobby system, Linux is now by far the most widely used server Operating System on the web. Linux scales from the smallest embedded systems such as mobile phones like Google's Android handsets to powering over 90% of the world's top 100 supercomputers and has superseded traditional UNIX and Microsoft Windows alike. As a result of its software licensing terms permitting anyone the freedom to distribute and modify, Linux is supported and cooperatively developed by many the world's major technology and hardware companies including IBM, Intel, AMD, HP, Samsung and Google as well as spawning its own, in Red Hat and Canonical, the makers of Ubuntu. As a result, Linux is now the commodity OS of choice, forming the basis of many free and commercially developed systems. The strength of Linux lies in its versatility, reliability, security and accessibility making it the ideal platform for web and email hosting, security products, virtualisation and as the basis for intelligent appliance products.
