Bangalore: Linux, the open source OS might not be on same charts of popularity as Microsoft’s Windows OS or Apple’s OS X, but it surely is making life easier to mankind. Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation, told, "You use Linux every day but you don't know it. It's such a fundamental part of our lives,” which in fact is true; the oft-forgotten OS is used in many of our day to day things around which our lives revolve. "It runs air traffic control, it runs your bank, and it runs nuclear submarines. Your life, money, and death are in Linux's hands, so we can keep you alive, clean you out, or kill you. It's incredible how important it is,” Zemlin added.
