What is Gnu/linux- well I am not gonna tell you people in detail because you can search about it on the web and millions of answers you will get . In short to say Gnu/linux is an open source operating system. You can Download the source code of all the tools and softwares under this operating system and can modify it according to your needs.

First Time I install Ubuntu on my laptop in Jan 2009 (3rd Trimester of my coll). On First Look Graphical User Interface to me looks Dizzy. Quite Impressive but when I started working doing my regular work on it,I found it really difficult. You have to start with Command Line (terminal) for things like compiling programs and all.. So at last I uninstalled it from my laptop. But something keeps striking my mind that what’s this thing… Y people love it so much??? what are the magical facts about it?? Then I reinstalled it and this time I use it properly. Whenever a problem was there, I just posted the problem on the web and thanks to the Linux community for that. Within 2-3 Hrs I got reply from the people solving my problem and this way I move further and further into this great world of Gnu/Linux. Believe me guys Gnu/linux has changed the way i use to work on the laptop. Thanks to Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman for creating this enviornment.
