Linux and Unix-like [collectively, *nix] Operating Systems are incredibly common. Almost every mobile phone, gaming system, internet streaming service, telephony service, and enterprise-level application uses the Linux-subsystem, or depends on *nix for business-critical work.

*nix is necessarily a very broad term though, so we’ve collected some of our favourite distributions for you look at to help give a flavour of what is on offer.

There are a multitude of Operating Systems, namely because *nix is based on open, collaborative and international work.

For example, FreeBSD and Red Hat are used by many businesses and government institutions globally, partly because they are licensed in a way which allows them to be open and customise-able.

They both have a range of certifications to demonstrate knowledge of best-practice, and Red Hat in particular has an award winning support arm as well as unparalleled ten year life-cycle to their solutions.

Enjoy! And if you have questions or queries, send us an email and we will be happy to answer them.
