System (X for short), and the MIT license (sometimes called the X11 license) continues to be used for Xorg-X11—the implementation of X included with many Linux distributions. The MIT license is unusually short. Apache Like the BSD and MIT licenses, the Apache license is an open source license that permits redistribution under the same or another license. If a text file called NOTICE comes with the original work, it must be included in any derived work. This enables the original developer to
Preemptive Multiuser Cooperative Single-tasking Single-user Which of the following is a characteristic of all open source software? The software cannot be sold for a profit; it must be distributed free of charge. It must be distributed with both the source code and binaries. Users are permitted to redistribute altered versions of the original software. The software was originally written at a college or university. The software must be written in an interpreted language that requires
this, the filesystem may suffer damage. Some devices, such as optical disc drives, can lock their eject mechanisms to prevent forced removal of the media. Figure 5.3 Linux file managers enable you to unmount removable media. Most removable disks either are unpartitioned or have a single partition. They frequently use FAT, which is a good choice for cross-platform compatibility. If you need to, you can partition USB flash drives and most other removable media. Optical discs are unusual
$ cut -f 7 -d ":" /etc/passwd | grep bash You are not limited to one pipe in your command line. For example, you can make the previous example more useful by putting in a second pipe. To determine the number of users who have the bash shell in their /etc/passwd record, another pipe is used and the wc command is tacked onto the pipeline’s end: $ cut -f 7 -d ":" /etc/passwd | grep bash | wc -l 237 In the previous example, three commands were included in the pipeline. There are 237 user accounts
