There is no charge for use of this service.

Linux is an operating system created by Linus Torvalds with the goal of creating a clone of UNIX that could run on normal PC hardware. It is maintained as "open source" software. The source code is freely available to anyone, and can be modified by anyone so long as they do not sell it for profit and they release their code to others.

Currently, the ITS Help Desk provides only limited support for the Linux operating system. This page is meant as a portal to other sites that can provide community support, how-tos, and other instruction guides for Linux users.
