In the past few years, Linux has dramatically grown in popularity
both at WHOI and on the Net at large. Developed on the Net in
response to its own users' and developers' needs, Linux-based
operating systems are remarkably versatile: Linux has found its
way into science and development workstations, embedded systems,
low- to middle-end server systems, and even end-user desktop systems.
This page is meant to be a starting point for information about

up, and maintaining it. We've also thrown in a few useful links
that will take you to other sites that have loads of information
Various distributions of Linux can be found on the NFS share:
