SQL is a "Structured Query Language"...it's kind of programming language for databases (like Mysql,Oracle etc...)...

SQL contains different types of Query's that we can build our own query and when we give this query to any database...result is given as output.

So answers for your questions are

1) Databases are kind of software which should be installed on our computer and then only you can use it....so it depends on which database you use ...MYSQL or ORACLE ... both can be installed on Window and Linux environment..

2) As i said earlier....depends on the database you use...

3) SQL is the language supported by databases

Wikipedia is the Best source to learn...please refer this link -> SQL - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
