[[w:Linux|Linux]] is an alternative operating system to the the Windows operating system created by [[w:Linus Torvalds|Linus Torvalds]] alongside a team of hackers.{{sfn|Moore|2017}}This OS is an Open Source Software which means that it is open to the public and they do not have to pay to use it.{{sfn|The Linux Kernel Archives: About |2014}} Having this system being free made me think that this system could not really be good. Why would anyone put something out for free. After watching the documentary ''Revolution OS'', I understood a little bit where the key players such as [[w:Richard Stallman|Richard Stallman]] and [[w:Eric S. Raymond|Eric S. Raymond]] were coming from and I respect their efforts. They felt that not being able to things such as codes between operating systems to be wrong and came up with their own solution to their problem. I also understand the side of [[w:Bill Gates|Bill Gates]] when he mentions how people shouldn't expect a group of people to work on an operating system to do it for free.{{sfn|An Open Letter to Hobbyists|1976}} The work that people have to put in to make these operating systems work well are tedious and they should be compensated for their work.
