What is Linux backward compatible?
Firstly let us discuss, compatibilityThe capability of one computer equipment which can be used with alternative equipment.The ability to be used and exist together without the need for alteration and this co-existence does not cause glitches. Any two products that have interoperability between them it can be software product or hardware product, different or same types of products, different edition or version of same product.
Then what is backward compatibleThe compatibility of the product with earlier versions. The product has been designed in such a way that it is compatible to previous versions.The scripting language Perl was designed in such a way that it was backward compatible to an earlier language known as awk.
The Linux backward compatible Linux kernel was developed by Linus Torvalds in the 1991.Being an open source and free model software has undergone a lot of changes. Then the backward compatibility regarding Linux would be in question since it has undergone so many changes
The Linux backward compatible If the source is built on the system on which it is to function then the backward compatibility can be possible with Linux.Linux OS consists of kernel and several applications of GNU project.Linux should be labeled as GNU / Linux OS
The Linux backward compatible Bash Shell written by Brain Fox meant for GNU project is a UNIX shellis in use.
To increase security and performance many applications under GNU have been enhanced and improved so many of them may not be backward compatible.The base of the Linux code is cleaned up and as the hardware is not in use, thus this code currently is not operational.
The Linux backward compatible Older Linux distributions are not maintained by individuals.
Developers are interested to invest their time and efforts in projects that is of significance to them. In this sense backward compatible would be difficult for Linux.
