    Linux isn’t just a lovable penguin (his name is Tux, in case you didn’t know). It’s the most popular operating system for web hosting servers. But why? What gives Linux that extra edge? Finnd out in this Tech Shout article.


    In short, it’s because Linux is an open-source operating system.

    “What makes an open-source operating system so special?” you might ask.

    An open-source OS is an operating system that has a free and public source code and is available for modification and redistribution both commercially and non commercially. Everyone can use it, edit it, and redistribute it for any reason they want.
