Linux is an open-source operating system that can improve your company’s data security and save money on software costs. Currently, Linux serves as the operating system for various devices, including smartphones, computers, internet-enabled televisions, and cars.

What is Linux, and what does it do? Linux is an operating system that allows software and hardware to communicate, enabling the software to perform desired functions. Since Linux is open-source, you can modify the operating system as needed and distribute copies of it without licensing restrictions.

Why does your team need to learn Linux now?

  • Reduced business costs for years of operation: Consider the expenses of your company’s current operating system. Typically, a new hire needs a computer, along with a new operating system, to begin working. Every few years, operating system manufacturers release new versions of their operating systems. Rather than paying for each generation of operating systems and buying licenses for new users, your team can learn how to use an operating system that remains free with our live in-person or live online team Linux training.
  • Ease of use: Once users learn how to navigate Linux, many find the operating system simple to use. It’s customizable, enabling your business to create the most optimized version of Linux for everyone to use. Your team will gain the skills and infrastructure knowledge to complete tasks more efficiently, increasing productivity.
  • Better security: Linux tends to have more robust security measures with fewer instances of malware and spyware targeting its users. You’ll also find that you can easily remove viruses that manage to infiltrate any devices. This ease of virus removal translates to fewer concerns over data security and reassuring internal and external clients and stakeholders that their information remains safe.
  • More reliable operating system: Linux tends to have fewer crashes while requiring fewer reboots to continue functioning at optimal levels. A more stable computer means that your team can perform more tasks in a day without being slowed down by forced restarts or malfunctioning software.

What is Linux?

Linux is an open-source operating system that receives requests from other software on a computer and relays those requests to the computer’s hardware. An operating system’s job is to manage a computer’s basic operations, like displaying characters on the screen and determining which keys a user is pressing on the keyboard. The operating system handles all of these tasks so that applications do not have to. Linux is similar to operating systems like Windows and iOs. However, as it is open-source, the code used to create Linux is available to the public to use and develop. Linux is highly customizable, allows users to choose core components, and is known for being high-security.

What is Unix?

Like Linux, Unix is an operating system. It is one of the oldest and most widely-used softwares available, having originated in the 1960s. It is a multi-user system through which resources can be shared by different users. Unix allows each user to execute multiple processes simultaneously and provides hierarchical file structure, which allows easier access to and maintenance of data. Unlike Linux, the source code for Unix is proprietary. It can be used as the master control program in workstations and servers.
