    I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
    Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.
    Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run.

    The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

    i was particularly referring to the collective of OS built upon the kernel. And to some extent , they r Linux.
    Linux is not a single Os i know that. It is one of the most amusing things we find in the tech world.

    @coldfire thank you so much for understanding! 😁

    @linuxxx it is actually related to speed like imagining my brain to run as if it is on horses. If you got thatπŸ˜…
    I like to think about it.

    @BrainOnHorses Ah right! Anyways, idk i always like to get into conversions through comments :)

    @kvsjxd Linus picked a marketable name, Stallman didn't, so he lost the crediting war. Harsh, but the reality is that GNU is a label only technical users will know about, and (fairly) calling it GNU/Linux just makes the OS less approachable to new users.

    2 days learning Linux is enough to see If someone will continue learning or give up easily.

    @krazycavin The question though, is how do you learn "Linux"? Even skipping past the whole "Linux is the kernel" thing, how do you learn an OS?

    Any moderately intelligent person can learn to install a user friendly distro within an hour, and learn to do all daily tasks within another hour... especially considering most people really only use a webbrowser.

    Learning how to set up cron tasks, use git, set up a shell profile, configure smb and iptables or use things like awk takes more time...

    But then the question should be "how to learn to use all the common tools and subsystems of a Linux distribution within 2 days" — and I haven't met anyone who mastered half of it. I still google "how to manually create a systemd service" every time I want to do it.

    @kvsjxd well memed

    Here have your 200th ++

    Also that reminds me of those ads i see on facebook showing "learn how to hack in x steps!". I guess technically that holds some truth if the steps are broad, ie "Step 1, learn several programming languages as thoroughly as you can within several years".

    He can learn in 2 days if he studied hard. 2 VENUS days that is. TROLOLOL πŸ˜†
