Linux Fundamentals Bootcamp Training: Linux powers 94 percent of the world’s supercomputers, most of the servers powering the internet, the majority of financial trades worldwide and a billion Android devices.

In short, Linux is everywhere – yet the public would never know it because for common home use in desktops and laptops, Linux remains an operating system (OS) that is relatively unknown compared to the more widely used home operating systems Windows and macOS. In fact, studies indicate that Windows accounts for 84 percent of the global desktop and laptop market compared to only 2 percent for Linux.

One problem that has plagued Linux – as it has macOS – is the difficulty in finding applications that run on its system. This is an issue for mostly businesses, but more programmers are developing applications that are supported by Linux. Many more applications are available for the working world – as with macOS — compared to what was available a decade ago.

Drivers have also been problematic. Before you can install any hardware component in your computer, you must make sure the hardware has drivers available. Hardware manufacturers usually write drivers for Windows, but not all brands write drivers for Linux. This means that some of your hardware might not be compatible with Linux if you decide to switch.

However, an argument could be made that Linux is actually overall more widely used than Windows OS. Take Android — the most popular mobile operating system in the world. Android uses a Linux kernel. There are an estimated 2.5 billion smartphones in the world, so we can safely assume Android is running on roughly 1.75 billion handsets. For comparison, Windows is running on an estimated 1.5 billion home computers.

Regarding supercomputers, Linux utterly dominates the list of the top 500 most powerful supercomputers in the world. In June 2017, 498 of the top 500 were running Linux. The only two non-Linux machines were running the Unix-based AIX.

Linux OS can also be found in consumer products as diverse as Amazon Kindle e-readers, smart TVs, Nest thermostats, drones and Tesla cars.

It’s also the operating system of choice for the Hollywood movie industry. 1997’s Titanic was the first blockbuster produced on Linux. Today, almost every box office hit uses the technology.

Linux has even powered space missions. SpaceX uses it for the Falcon 9 rockets.

Users like the two main advantages of Linux: enhanced security and it’s free. As an open source-system OS, Linux allows anyone to download it, change it and contribute to the internal kernel.
