The Linux Man !
Hi folks....I wanted to know some interesting facts about Linux.....Actually I am presenting a paper on Linux in which I want to add these facts....I want to know practical places, companies and sites where Linux is being used....also the applications in which linux is being used...For example I will like to share one amazing fact...I don't know whether it is true or not but I have heard it a lot....I have heard that NASA uses DEBIAN Linux and they have not rebooted their servers from past many years coz of its security and stability...Please share facts like these


I see right through you.
If you're smart enough to consider giving a presentation on linux, you definitely be smart enough to search for everything you need. All of those links, and much more, come within the first 2-3 pages of any google search on linux.


left this forum longback
one -Linux is NOT UNIX,but UNIX-like :p and UNIX file permission system and FS hierarchy which is very different.get some insights on these-if for a presentation.hence virus/worms cant damage etc etc :)
