Linux is a UNIX-like operating system built around POSIX standards.  From
its inception less than five years ago, it was developed over the
Internet by a group of people who (for the most part) have never seen
each other, and now runs on an (estimated) 1,000,000 computer systems. 
The operating system (and the source code for it) is free to anyone who
wants it.  This is probably the largest development project ever
accomplished using the Internet.
