A Linux distribution (often called distro for short) is a member of the family of Unix-like operating systems built on top of the Linux kernel . Such distributions are operating systems including a large collection of software applications such as word processors, spreadsheets, media players, and database applications. These operating systems consist of the Linux kernel and, usually, a set of libraries and utilities from the GNU Project , with graphics support from the X Window System .
