UNIXF2 - Linux History And Idea

Open Source Hardware:


The hardware components are defined for managing the specific software format, this hardware component also available in publically to create the copy, modify the features and re-distribute the hardware and its source code without paying any cost or royalties. The organization provides a license to the user for managing the hardware and its features. A license holder open moko provide hardware components related to the phone and open risk provide open source microprocessor under the license like GPL, LGPL, SHR.

Linux Origin:

Linux origin

It is an operating system that controls the system activities and processing. This operating system implemented in 1997 for commercial purpose. It is the project of GNU that started in 1983 by Richard Stallman and developed on Unix based operating system with graphics icon, that is known as GNU. It supports the features of Unix library, editing tools etc to perform the task. In 1991 a student LinTorvaldslds of the University of Helsinki in fill-land developed on the kernel for executing the user command and introduced by Linux with the old version.

Linux Principles:

Linux Principles

A) Everything is a file:

Unix and Linux system manage everything in file format including hardware, software, and other components and all are represented in the form of files. It helps to the user to access the details of particulars tools.

B) Small single purpose program:

Unix provides utilize to perform them with different functions. Each function contains a separate program to execute user instruction.

C) Ability to change program:

The code design feature of the program can be input for another to provide the flexibility to the user to combine many small programs together to perform large and complex task details. The administrator can easily move the files and its location with the help of the configuration file. Linux system manages the hardware or software related configuration in the form of the file.
