Summary

Linux is a flexible OS that can be deployed in many places on an existing Windows network. Its most common use is as a server to supplement or replace Windows servers, but you can also run Linux as a workstation OS. When deploying Linux, you’ll have to match the Linux software to the hardware by selecting an appropriate distribution for your CPU and for the role you intend Linux to play on the network. You then need to select the server programs or end user applications you wish to run.
