Linux Succinctly – Linux is a Unix-like operating system that is one of the most popular open source operating systems on the planet. And It is the heart of countless software products, from enterprise operating systems like Android and Red Hat Enterprise LinuxOs, to hobbyist projects on a wide range of devices. So LinuxOs Succinctly by Jason Cannon will teach you the basics of interacting with LinuxOs. Such as viewing and editing files and directories through the command line. And how to modify permissions.
More advanced topics covered include I/O streams, sorting and comparing files and directories, and installing additional software.In addition Linux is a Unix-like open source operating system. At the core of the operating system is the Linux kernel. And It acts as the intermediary between the applications which run in the operating system and the underlying hardware.
A LinuxOs distribution is the Linux kernel and a collection of software that, together, creates an operating system. Even though the Linux kernel is at the heart of every distribution, the software . So that is installed by default can vary greatly as each distribution its own goals and areas of focus. However, what you will learn in this book is applicable to any distribution as the concepts are fundamental to the LinuxOs operating system as a whole.In conclusion The LinuxOs directory structure is like a tree.
Hence, The base of the LinuxOx file system hierarchy begins atthe root, or trunk, and directories branch off from there. Also Each one of these directories, calledfolders on other operating systems. and it can and often do contain other directories. So The directorieson a LinuxOs system are separated by a forward slash.
As a result Some distros (distributions) are maintain by a community of volunteers. While others are back by companies that charge fees for subscriptions and support. Because Some distros are designed to run on laptops and desktops, while others are designed to run on servers.
The following are just a few of the most popular LinuxOs distributions available today:
• Linux Mint
• Arch Linux
• Red Hat Enterprise Linux
