Introduction to Linux

Get introduced to the people who made major contributions to Linux.

Does Linux provide the same environment?

Linux is a freely available operating system whose source code is also available.

The standard library functions, such as scanf(), will show the same behavior under Linux as they do in Windows. However, the implementation of these functions might be different from the functions written for the Windows Operating System.

Programs whose functionality depends on the Windows OS won’t compile in Linux. For example, if we create a Windows program that displays your name where the mouse is clicked upon, we will not be able to run such a program in Linux. Such functions depend upon the Operating System.
