    I'm just kidding!

    I know what Linux is and I know it's basic functions. I'd consider myself an intermediate user. Not so much a noob as I know about it and can do some stuff with it, but not an expert as I definitely have a lot to learn about it!

    Looking forward to learning with you all!

    Linux is this weird penguin I found on my doorstep this morning, he's a bit on the chubby side:

    Before I joined this site, the topic heading was what I thought to myself about Linux due to my lack of knowledge towards the subject. Now I have more knowledge of Linux after joining this site. Good luck with all!

    Strictly speaking, Linux is nothing but the Linux kernel. However, term Linux is used to describe Linux as an an operating system. The term Linux distribution is used to refer to the various operating systems built on top of the Linux Kernel.
