Is Linux the kernel or OS?

 Linux is a kernel, not the OS:- The program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run is known as the kernel. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself, it can only function in the context of a complete operating system.

Do you know what was the use of ls command in Linux?

ls is a Linux shell command that lists all the directory contents of files and directories. It provides valuable information about all the files, directories, and their attributes in a particular folder.

  • ls -F
  • ls -g
  • ls -i
  • ls -m
  • ls -n
  • ls -r
