    The "Linux" source code is the source code for the kernel, yes. That's all "Linux" is: a kernel. The operating system that's built around it contains thousands of different programs, most of which are released under the GPL License, and all their source code is available for free download/modification and even resale (provided you follow the guidelines).

    You mean re-distrobution, since you never really 'buy' or 'sell' it.
