Linux History and Use
Your task is to write a 1-2 page paper on Linux. Use Arial 10 font, double spaced. Source your material appropriately - any style. Three or four sources is sufficient.
In particular, you should answer the following:
- List one thing that happened in 1991 that has meaning to you.
- Why should we care about Linux?
- How is it different than other operating systems?
- Can you find any devices that you use daily that might run Linux?
- Find a piece of software that you traditionally use and see if there are any open-source alternatives. Read about it, demo it if you can. What operating systems will it run on? What do you think about it? (You need not run it on Linux if you are choosing to run it.)
- Many ideas can be found here.
- Why hasn’t it taken the world by storm?
