Hello Softwarelint readers, After a long research i some up with great information on linux operating system. as we all know now a days in the world of programming and hacking, Linux stands over many platform.
Linux was originally developed as a free operating system for Intel x86-based personal computers. It has since been ported to more computer hardwareplatforms than any other operating system. It is a leading operating system on servers and other big iron systems such as mainframe computers andsupercomputers: more than 90% of today’s top 500 supercomputers run some variant of Linux, including the 10 fastest. Linux also runs on embedded systems (devices where the operating system is typically built into the firmware and highly tailored to the system) such as mobile phones,tablet computers, network routers, televisions and video game consoles; the Android system in wide use on mobile devices is built on the Linux kernel.

Why hacker use Linux and why do they like ?
Hackers don’t use only one OS or programing language. Depending on what are they hacking exactly, they’ll use whatever is at hand. Knowledge of using several operating systems and programing languages are “a must” for some advanced hacking. Some things are more easily done in Windows some more easily in Linux. Linux or other Unix-like operating systems (BSD…) are usualy hacker’s choice OSs. What makes Linux the hacker’s choice is that (almost) everything is OpenSource and freely available, after all Linux was made by hackers . On the other hand, all those OpenSource tool are ported for other operating systems so hackers are not limited to one operating system. Whatever OS does the job, they’ll use it. Same with programing languages. Some things can be more easily done in some higher level or script languages like Perl, Python, Bash script, some require low level programing with CC++ and Assembler.
Mac and Windows user
Yes that’s true linux is not easy to use so far but softwarelint as promised will guide you in making things easy & convenient by simple tricks & tweaks. After you read the above info hope you got how important linux in worlds of hacking and programming as it is an OSS (open source software). An instead of that many of other most popular platform like android also runs on linux kernels. These info shows how much linux is important for beginner programmer and for an software engineers.
