I wonder which linux distro or any other OS replit runs...
(I am 10000% sure, it is not windows or ubuntu or debian or fedora or linux mint)

@Whirlpool Despite what you said, I believe that Replit uses Ubuntu, I am not sure what version they use but when you start a C++ Repl this appears in the console:

clang version 7.0.0-3~ubuntu0.18.04.1 (tags/RELEASE_700/final)
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ^ ubuntu

But there are many things that you can't do on Replit that most linux distributions can do for security reasons. e.g. you cant use sudo.

@samfierycreeper yep.. not even apt works!
