What is a linux distro
A Linux distribution, often shortened to Linux distro, is an operating system compiled from components developed by various open source projects and programmers. Each distribution includes the Linux kernel (the foundation of the operating system), the GNU shell utilities (the terminal interface and commands), the X server (for a graphical desktop), the desktop environment, a package management system, an installer and other services. Many components are developed independently from each other and are distributed in source code form. Distros also include an Internet browser, management tools and other software such as the KVM hypervisor. A single Linux distribution may contain thousands of software packages, utilities and applications.
