- ∞ - 📷 🔗    

Linux is a clone of the Unix kernel, written from scratch by Linus Torvalds with assistance from a loosely-knit team of hackers across the Net. It aims towards POSIX and Single UNIX Specification compliance. It has all the features you would expect in a modern fully-fledged Unix kernel, including true multitasking, virtual memory, shared libraries, demand loading, shared copy-on-write executables, proper memory management, and TCP/IP networking.

Changes: Many aspects of the kernel were changed, including arm, alpha, ppc, sparc, usb, isdn, dm, sysfs, and knfsd.
