Linux is a new operating system developed by a Finland programmer named Linus Torvald. Linux is free and the source code is all 'open'. That is, any one can work on the Linux operating system and then post new code to improve it. This concept is known as 'Open Source'. IBM has adopted Linux as a standard. It is a new system and there are tradeoffs to using it. It is hard to install and it is still being tested. But it very useful, and it is free.
