So, you want us to do your homework for you, and email it to you? Sorry...not going to happen. We will be glad to HELP you, and clear up confusion you might have, but asking for a handout is plain rude and lazy.

You're wrong then.
It was Bill Gates. He was working at PARC at the time as a janitor and accidentally invented it when he plugged in a mainframe instead of his floor polisher.

I assume you changed the phrasing from what was on the question sheet, but some of these aren't answerable, not even if you're satisfied with just a "best possible" answer and don't need a strictly correct one:

Quote:
2. The file system/s that Linux used is?
Linux has several filesystems in common use.

Quote:
2. LINUX has better security structure than windows (Y/N)?
This is a holy war. It depends on which version of Windows you're using for comparison, and what you mean by "better."

Quote:
15. In Run level 3 the Linux system is booted in GUI interface (Y/N)?
Runlevels are distribution-dependent. While "N" is probably the "right" answer, there's nothing to prevent you from making a distribution where runlevel 3 boots into X.

Does that make me a genius?

Now you mention it a few more of the questions also strike me as being written by somebody who thinks they know more about Linux than they really do.

I will have to add in Hello and Welcome to LQ.

Unfortunately you are getting poked fun at a bit with your questions. (I was poking fun too.)

8.5 x 14 We tried letter size, but had to go with legal size due to overflow.

Cookie Dough and Half Baked. (Yes, all LQ members prefer Ben and Jerrys ice cream. Known fact.)

By hand, and automated.

Bobby, used to be called Frank but they changed it about 8 years ago

The kernel (a.k.a. Colonel) is the top system administrator person. As far as their file name, they can call their account anything they want because they're in charge.

Yet Another Stupid Topic, a.k.a. "D'Uh!" Yeah ... it's pretty rude when people say that.

Logical Scram - only to be used when erasing an entire disk

Open when running, closed when the system is in hibernate or shutdown.

This is very technical actually, Linux does follow the MSDOS 8.3 format, but triple inversion of encoded ASCII allows a much higher rate of characters to be used per line. I've heard tales that they're looking at quintuple inversion for future versions.

B. Following options are true or false.

FALSE! Just look at the spelling, it started from INUX. YAST!!

Structure? Yes. Overall security? Major topic of contention here, sorry to say.

The top level directory is known to be whatever the kernel (Colonel) named it to be, see above

No, it's not sensitive at all, most systems are highly tolerant of the various ways people type, one fingered, or higly proficient, Linux still operates the same.

Alert! Trap question, Legacy boot IS UEFI

Another trap question. This is a sentence fragment, did you type it all in properly? I keep telling you it's INUX and that will never be complete, that's why they started LINUX, I hear that SLINUX is the next attempt, currenltly only available from the top Colonel who's writing the next generation.

This was covered above, see triple inversion concepts

Dead false. It stands for Command Direction.

Not true, the foot is mounted into the boot. Yeah! Geeky, I know ...

This is a very dicey question, the original Linux family was from the Paltrovich family in Poland(?); however the Pentersons came into prominence in the last 5 years, I think they're from the U.K. No real US presence though. Same for So America and Australia sorry to say.

Once again the Colonel is the sysadmin, they don't always respond when you email, call, or text them, it really depends on the relationship you have with that person and/or how professional they really are.

Yes, some people are computers in their own right, see above.

Sadly, not much is typically tested, that's why it's all still freeware. Truly I'd heard that the "every other" convention came into play because the coder pretty much had a train wreck just about every other release, so in reverence to them, they continued this convention.

No, it's booted to the FLUID interface, after that congeals (solidifies) it becomes GUI.

You can apply as often as you like, there are no restrictions.

KDE was written by Kathryn Remorse a.k.a. Katie Remorse --> Kay-Dee, that explains that. GNOME was written by a short guy, I forget his name, but they called him the gnome, he didn't like it much, but the name stuck. Really KDE is for women and GNOME is for men, those are the primary differences and this is a big controversial topic with all the openness in the world these days. Hence everyone's moving to UBOOT-DESKTOP, you should too. And be careful insuling one versus the other, especially in mixed company.

The opening post is probably a verbatim homework assignment. What a challenge for students when the teacher's Linux knowledge and written communication skills are as illustrated
