Linux is a free Unix-type operating system that was originally created
by Linus Torvalds with the assistance of developers around the world.
Linux is an independent POSIX implementation and includes true
multitasking, virtual memory, shared libraries, demand loading, proper
memory management, TCP/IP networking, and other features consistent
with Unix-type systems. Linux is developed under the GNU General Public
License, the source code for Linux is freely available to everyone.
Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies
the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry
penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more
careful about what they say if they had.
-- Linus Torvalds, creator of the Linux kernel, on Tux the Pengiun
