    Linux is an operating system like Windows XP, but Linux is open-source while XP is closed source. What it means is that you can use XP, but you wouldn't know the code that made it. But you can use Linux and also have the source code (although you have to agree to some licences to be able to modify the code to your own needs.)

    Linux is just one flavor of open source operating system, but a popluar one. Others are FreeBSD, Solaris, System V. Generally, it's called Unix.
