Ah, Linux. The third of the holy triumvirate of PC operating systems, along with Windows and Mac OS. Each have their own pros and cons, and each has their own identity. Linux could probably be best described as the most rebellious of the three; it’s malleable and customizable (as long as you have a strong understanding of computers and Linux), with dozens of different distros created by unique communities for different uses. Plus, the Linux kernel and most distros are completely free, which is a major selling point for the OS when compared to Mac OS and Windows.There are Linux distros for many different use cases.
