As one of the most popular operating systems on the planet, we are all living in a Linux world. All of the world’s top 500 supercomputers run Linux, not to mention our cars, phones, and home appliances. This trusty OS has now been around for a few decades, which in technological terms is a very long time indeed, but it shows no signs of extinction.
IBM saw the future and got on board early, creating a Linux-based operating system that could run on mainframes in place of mainframe-native systems. It took Microsoft a bit longer, but even they eventually became collaborators.
Perhaps you learned Linux out of a love for the tenets of open source, or the low cost of entry, or the endless possibilities of innovation. Or maybe you had it thrust upon you by the exigencies of the job market. Either way, we invite you to test your (trivial) Linux knowledge with our trivia challenge below!
