Welcome to Introduction to Linux Operating System. This course is designed to introduce
POSIX complient operating systems to students enrolled in CIS 103 Problem Solving. POSIX operating
systems are derived from the UNIX operating system and are dominant in computer science research.
They are also dominant in internet infrastructure and have been very influential on the development
of other operating systems including MS-DOS and Windows. POSIX operating systems are extensively used
in computer science courses at Potsdam. This course also introduces a number of useful tools supported
by POSIX systems such as the LaTeX typesetting system and the emacs text editor.
