Linux is a kernel, in itself not an extremely useful piece of software to the user, but very important: it provides hardware resources management, and access to the hardware is necessary to get anything done, of course. To have a fully functional operating system, some basic software is needed as well. A GNU/Linux distribution is the complete package. Most modern distributions also come with graphical installers to help with the initial setup.
