Usage details[edit]

For information about the parameters in this template, see Template:Infobox software/doc. A number of elements of this template, however, need further explanation:

Family - This is the operating system family, examples include Microsoft Windows, Unix-like and Mac OS. Linux and Mac OS X are not OS families.

Source model - This field is should usually have "Open source" or "Closed source". Do not use "free software", "free and open source software" or "FOSS" as they are mainly licensing models and may or may not use the "open source" development methodology.

Kernel type - For Linux distros, this should be [[Linux kernel|Linux]]. It should not be the name of a distro.
