If they think of it at all, most average PC users probably consider Linux to be some tekkie thing that only computer geeks use. In fact, Linux is all around us. It may have only a small share of the desktop computer market but Linux is a major player in many other computing areas. Android phones use it, Amazon, Facebook, Google, Twitter and other major networks use it. The majority of servers use it and so do most supercomputers. Linux is everywhere.
