Too Long; Didn't Read
Linux has been a community driven operating system since its inception. It is a volunteer-based community with a collective identity of people who use, develop and distribute Linux and share the goal of creating a better operating system. The Linux community is very diverse, partly reflected in the wide range of GNU/LINUX-related software. Without the community, Linux would not be what it is today, it is a project that has inspired the free-source movement and millions of lines of code that applies.
