Linux is a robust and powerful open source operating system.

Due to its stability, the OS is deployed in high performance and mission critical servers worldwide, including many here at the Weizmann Institute.

Linux can also be installed on desktop computers. Much like Windows and Mac OS, it offers users a modern and intuitive GUI (Graphical User Interface), and supports a range of office productivity, Internet and graphics software applications.

A range of Linux “distros” (distributions) are available, including Fedora, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, RedHat, SLES and many more, and we support a number of them.
