Linux - Distribution (Or Operating System)


Linux is an open source software and anyone can take it and create this own Linux (of distribution of Operating system). It's why you can find a lot of distribution on the market :

  • Oracle Enterprise Linux (which is derived from Red Hat)
  • Ubuntu 8.04 ( The Linux reference ?)
  • Mandriva Spring One 2008 ( The challenger ? )
  • Fedora 9 ( The most recent version )
  • Open Suse 10.3 ( a Swiss army knife )

The distribution (as other applications) in the stack is above the kernel.
