No support requests – This is not a support forum! Head to /r/linuxquestions or /r/linux4noobs for support or help. Looking for a distro? Try r/findmeadistro.
No spamblog submissions – Posts that are identified as either blog-spam, a link aggregator, or an otherwise low-effort website are to be removed.
No memes, image macros or rage comics – Meme posts are not allowed in r/linux. Feel free to post over at /r/linuxmemes instead.
Reddiquette, trolling, or poor discussion – r/linux asks all users follow Reddiquette. Top violations of this rule are trolling, starting a flamewar, or not “remembering the human” aka being hostile or incredibly impolite.
Relevance to r/linux community – Posts should follow what the community likes: GNU/Linux, Linux kernel itself, the developers of the kernel or open source applications, any application on Linux, and more. Take some time to get the feel of the subreddit if you’re not sure!
Spamming self-promotion and surveys – Submitting your own original content is welcome on r/linux, but we do ask that you contribute more than just your own content to the subreddit as well as require you to interact with the comments of your submission. Additionally, surveys are not allowed.
No misdirecting links, sites that require a login, or URL shorteners – In short: if your link doesn’t go right to the content it will be removed.
Please review full details on rules here.
GNU/Linux is a free and open source software operating system for computers. The operating system is a collection of the basic instructions that tell the electronic parts of the computer what to do and how to work. Free, Libre and open source software (FLOSS) means that everyone has the freedom to use it, see how it works, and change it.
GNU/Linux is a collaborative effort between the GNU project, formed in 1983 to develop the GNU operating system and the development team of Linux, a kernel. Initially Linux was intended to develop into an operating system of its own, but these plans were shelved somewhere along the way.
Linux is also used without GNU in embedded systems, mobile phones and appliances, often with BusyBox or other such embedded tools.
Don’t post image-macros, rage comics, or other drivel here.
