I've been a satisfied user of the
operating system and the
scripting language for a number of years now,
so I have a few links for each of these subjects.
Linux is an open-source clone of the Unix operating
system. Most people run it on generic PC hardware, although
it's been made to run on everything from Sony Playstations
to IBM mainframes. But if you're reading this page
you probably already know this, so I won't bore you
anymore. Here are some good Linux links.

Tcl stands for "tool command language". It is a scripting
language that is embeddable and extensible. ("Embeddable"
means that it can easily be incorporated into other
pieces of software; "extensible" means that new commands
can be added to Tcl.) Tcl was developed by John Ousterhout,
who was on the faculty of UC Berkeley at the time.
Tk is a window toolkit that is built on top of Tcl.
For more information, read on.
