Linux is a kernel that implements the POSIX and Single Unix Specification standards
which is developed as an Open Source project.
Usually when one talks of “installing Linux”, one is referring to a Linux
Distribution.
A distribution is a combination of Linux and other programs and library that form an
operating system.

There exists many such distribution for various purposes, from high end servers to
embedded systems.
They all share the same interface, thanks to the LSB standard
Linux runs on 15 main platforms and supports applications ranging from ccNUMA super
clusters to cellular phones and micro controllers.
Linux is 11 years old, but is based on the 30 years old Unix design philosophy
