Linux is a free UNIX compliant OS implementation written by Linus Torvalds and lots of people on the Internet.

If you seek help on Linux, you should first check all the documentation above. Also, individual packages have READMEs, FAQs, and local documentation that you should check (sometimes only available in the source distribution, not in binary packages).

If you want to toy with both Linux and Open/Net/FreeBSD, a lot of useful information is available in the Linux+FreeBSD mini-HOWTO.

Finally, people who want to develop a graphics system on their OS should definitely have a look at the Linux project and standard to be, GGI (the Generic Graphic Interface).
