- Simplicity of control compared to Multics
- all data is stored as plain text
- tree saving of a single-root file
- access to multiple user accounts
b) system utilities (or so-called utilities)
c) many other applications
Linux began to be developed by Linus Torvalds in 1991, which was a system that dealt with as a hobby. One of the main reasons why Linux started to deal with Unix was the simplicity of the system. The first official release of the provisory version of Linux (0.01) occurred on September 17, 1991. Even though the system was completely imperfect and complete, it was of great interest to him, and within a few days, Linus started to write emails with other ideas about expansion or source codes.
- run multiple tasks at once (multitasking)
- programs may consist of one or more processes (multipurpose system), and each process may have one or more threads
- multiuser, so it can run multiple user programs
- individual accounts are protected by appropriate authorization
- so the accounts have precisely defined system control rights
The author of Tuxe Penguin’s logo is Larry Ewing of 1996, who accepted him as a mascot for his open-source Linux operating system. Linux Torvalds proposed the initial name of the new operating system as “Freax” as free + freak + x (Unix system), but it did not like the FTP server where the provisory version of Linux was running.
