When choosing an operating system, you are looking above all for extended functionality, stability, security, and reliability. For a long time, Linux pranced at the top of software in terms of stability, before being overtaken by Windows.

Computers mainly use Linux distributions. It is the association between a Linux kernel and software to form an operating system which can then be implemented by an end-user. Linux can be used on supercomputers, multimedia peripheral devices as well as on-board systems, netbooks, mobile phones, servers, or desktop computers, in a wide and varied manner. Linux is a safe bet for your mobile devices as well as in the server market. However, its role on laptops and desktops is smaller but is currently gaining ground.
