Hi @patelkamleshpatel364,
Aside from both Python and Bash being shell-scripted languages, I fail to see why someone needs to know Python before starting with any GNU/Linux distribution.

What is an Operating System?

Every time you switch on your computer, you see a screen where you can perform different activities like write, browse the internet or watch a video. What is it that makes the computer hardware work like that? How does the processor on your computer know that you are asking it to run a mp3 file?

Well, it is the operating system or the kernel which does this work. A kernel is a program at the heart of any operating system that takes care of fundamental stuff, like letting hardware communicate with software.

So, to work on your computer, you need an Operating System(OS). In fact, you are using one as you read this on your computer. Now, you may have used popular OS’s like Windows, Apple OS X but here we will learn what Linux is and what benefits it offers over other OS choices.

Introduction to the Linux Operating System

What is Linux?

Linux is an operating system or a kernel. It is distributed under an open source license. Its functionality list is quite like UNIX.

Who created Linux?

Introduction to the Linux Operating System

Linux is an operating system or a kernel which germinated as an idea in the mind of young and bright Linus Torvalds when he was a computer science student. He used to work on the UNIX OS (proprietary software) and thought that it needed improvements.

However, when his suggestions were rejected by the designers of UNIX, he thought of launching an OS which will be receptive to changes, modifications suggested by its users .

This image clears up the difference between the actual Linux kernel project and what is generally termed as Linux OS family.

The history of Linux is nicely explained here-
