Linux & Unix

Linux and Unix are in widespread use as server systems and account for a large portion of web servers. However, such technologies are also used in desktop systems and particularly in cell phone software (e.g. Android, Maemo, Jolla/Sailfish). Many small, dedicated devices such as DSL routers, NAS, firewalls etc. nowadays run Linux.
