Linux Tutorial Series – 10 – Recap

Here is the video version, if you prefer it:

We have talked about what an operating system is – it is a very useful piece of software which enables you to communicate with the hardware conveniently. We also talked about the kernel and learned that it manages processes, memory, device drivers and system calls, as well as established that users are people that use the computer and each one has (or should have) a user account associated with him/her.

We established that there is a difference between the user space and the kernel space, as well as there being a difference between regular users and superusers. Kernel space is only accessible to the operating system, while the user space is where the user programs reside. Superusers get to execute certain commands that regular users can’t (don’t have the permission to). We learned that a Linux distribution is an operating system made from a software collection that is based upon the Linux kernel.We also talked about some Linux installation details.

Hope this served as a good review!
