linux

Linux is a Unix-like computer operating system assembled under the model of free and open source software development and distribution. The defining component of Linux is the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released 5 October 1991 by Linus Torvalds.  It has since been ported to more computer hardware platforms than any other operating system. It is a leading operating system on servers and other big iron systems such as mainframe computers and supercomputers: more than 90% of today's 500 fastest supercomputers run some variant of Linux, including the 10 fastest. Here's the Wikipedia page.

Performance of Postgres/EnterpriseDB on IBM PowerLinux

IBM's PowerLinux is the combination of a Linux-based operating system running on IBM Power Architecture technology. This combination produces a customizable system capable of handling large quantities of data more efficiently without the need for additional hardware. To determine real world performance, we composed a test scenario with two comparable systems running large database operations. This test also shows that Linux can be an abstraction layer on different types of hardware that are better at running certain workloads.

Arch Linux: a simple, cutting edge operating system for your desktop

Arch linux

The main idea behind Arch Linux: provide a distribution which keeps things as simple as possible. A good example is the way they replace the classic sysv init system with a simple array of values. No upstart, no systemd, no tools necessary to create start/stop symlinks. The order in which you place the names of the init scripts, is the order in which they are started. Simple, no?
