Linux is a family of free and open source Unix-like operating systems based on Linus Torvalds' Linux kernel. It is commonly used in servers and in software development. Linux is sometimes called GNU/Linux, because software provided by the GNU Project is often included in Linux distributions.

NetHack has been supported on Linux since 1999 or earlier[1]; most variants are supported too.

To install NetHack locally, the easiest option is usually using your Linux distribution's package manager.
