I can understand it was made in Finland and they have a penguin but after that it gets complicated.

LOL

On a more serious note, here is a quote of something else which was said, which might help people wondering what Linux is Wink:

GnuLinux is an open-source operating system, which means that it wasn't "made" by any one person - it is always evolving from contributions by many different programmers worldwide. There are many different "flavors" of linux because of this, and each is fully customizable to your needs.

Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

Well as for me Linux is a remarkably complete operating system, including a graphical user interface, an X Window System, TCP/IP, the Emacs editor, and other components usually found in a comprehensive Unix system.

I use Linux exclusively, and am used to it. It need less system resources compared to other operating systems. It is the simplest version of windows ever created.
