GNU/Linux is an Open-source operating system which is gaining wide acceptance within the computing world. Richard Stallman initiated the GNU project in 1983, which stands for "GNU's Not Unix" (A recursive acronym). Linus Torvalds developed the first LINUX kernel in 1991; originally used Minix (UNIX like system). The OS could be booted from a media, similar to the lower-level Disk Operating System. The project's "correct" name is GNU/Linux, though the common way to refer to it is as Linux.
Linux 0.01 was released on September 17, 1991. The project became the cornerstone of LAMP (LINUX, APACHE, MySQL, PHP). Advances in technology and programming allowed the operating system to be installed using a CD which contains the ISO image. The logo that has become representative of the was GNU/Linux project is a penguin which is featured above, created by Larry Ewing in 1996.
