Linux or GNU/Linux as some call it is a unix-like computer operating system that was created by Linus Torvalds and was released under the GNU general public license. Linux is not just used on desktop and laptop computers it is used in many devices such as supercomputers, servers, mobile devices (android) and even gaming consoles.

Linux comes in many distributions promoting choice if you are thinking of trying some distributions you may want to have a look at distrowatch which has a list of the hundreds of distributions available some of which have a live CD feature which lets you try the operating system before installing it.
