Het Operating System VRIJ voor allen !!!!
Linux is a free Unix-like operating system originally created back in 1991 by Linus Torvalds. With the assistance of programmers and developers around the world, Linux has become an independent POSIX (Portable Operating System Interface for Unix) implementation which includes true multitasking, virtual memory, shared libraries, demand loading, memory management, TCP/IP networking, and numerous other features that are consistent with Unix-like systems. Developed under the GNU General Public License, the source code for Linux is freely available to everyone. To the uninitiated, the "Unix-like" tag may sound suspiciously like a complicated. drab, business networking monster, offering little more than screen after screen of indecipherable code. Linux, while probably not for the faint of heart, can offer a graphically exciting, highly configurable means of getting the things you want done, done.
A deeper and richer multitasking environment than Windows, it does require learning command line computing to a degree, and much like early forms of Windows, it requires coded configuration for devices and drivers, but this means you can have a great deal more control over everything your computer does.
Linux and Super7 Architecture Because Linux was designed around the 386 processor, all 386, 486, 586 etc, processors will support the OS, (Cryix processors require some special configuration) and both VIA's MVP3 and ALI's Aladdin V core logic chipsets I have tried seem to support the OS without any problems at all. Linux, unfortunately does not recognize Plug-n-Play hardware which necessitates either disabling PnP or using a utility called isapnp to properly configure it.
All memory, most HDDs and Soundblaster compatible ISA soundcards are all supported, as well as all but a few modems. Video cards seem to create the most headaches. Most nexgen card have no acceleration support or require special 3rd party drivers although Voodoo2 can, with a little effort, find support. Some SCSI Host adapters don't get along well with Linux but fixes are constantly in the works and more and more hardware is finding support within the OS. For the most part, hardware, unless it is brand new, works very well once properly configured.
