This article starts with using a computer that has Windows running on Windows for a long time and people are prepared to make the leap to Pisi Linux. Write composing the body of tools and features available in Windows on Linux provisions former topic before, then you'll frequently hear will focus on the concepts of Linux and free software will be rolled out to the desktop after.

What is Linux?

Today we met many users and computers using Windows computer Windows came to mind at the mention. But Linux since 1991 by an international army of volunteers, continue to be developed and also huge commercial success in the server market realizes.

Linux kernel, which support many hardware, the actual communication with the computer, allowing the operating system is the core part. However, this core as a stand-alone operating system is unthinkable. Linux on the desktop that makes it available, the core is centered around the free software community. This is the Linux kernel and other free software users by bringing together an operating system that can be easily installed and used, making kitty Linux as well as various Linux distributions. Nowadays, a large number of Linux distributions for different needs are. All of these systems, which use the Linux kernel Linux, are called for.

The main visible face for users of Linux distributions, the distribution used by the desktop environment is. Graphical desktop environment interface which allows the use of computers, a window manager and desktop application that hosts a variety of software packages is the name given. Written for Linux, the most widely used desktop environments KDE and Gnome.

What is Pisi Linux

Pisi Linux, is a Linux-based operating system development project. Pisi in the Linux system;

  • The Linux kernel
  • KDE , Gnome , XFCE and Mate desktop environments such as
  • Pisi Linux projects

Some other widely used free software ( LibreOffice , Mozilla Firefox , Gimp , etc.) are located. Pisi Linux, KDE desktop environment are used.

Pisi separates it from other Linux distributions Linux basic components of the original Pisi Linux projects. They were developed by a team of Linux developers, and Pisi package management, system management for a variety of applications and technologies.

What is free Software?

Free Software (Free Software) concept, the users of the software to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve is a concept about freedom. Free software often has to be free, even though they are not so free Free Software, Free Software is not to say. Pisi Linux project and almost all the software that came with it (the Linux kernel, KDE desktop environment included) is a free software. The most common are three free licenses: GNU General Public License (GPL), BSD License , Artistic License Some of the common features of these licenses have are: You can install the software on any number of machines. Remove the desired number of copies of the Software, and you can give to any one you want (while proprietary software is usually free, even if they do not allow copying). A free software how it works as you want to examine, if you like writing purpose other than for your needs can adapt. (Naturally, for this source codes to be accessed is needed. All free software, the source code is open). A free software, you can distribute as you wish, you can share it with others and you can even buy the software. Along with this freedom comes the first indication of the origin of the product is required. Free Software (Free Software) is often Open Source Software (Open Source Software) is mixed with. All free software is open source, open source software is free software, but all can be.
