Linux is a largely POSIX-compliant kernel similar to Unix.

When combined with GNU libraries (e.g. glibc) and tools (e.g. bash, find-utils, bin-utils...), the combination may be referred to as GNU/Linux.

Other arrangements are possible, such as using BusyBox in place of a standalone shell and other command-line tools.
