Torvalds Drives A Mac!

By on March 9, 2005

Technically, it’s only an Apple, since he’s running Linux instead of OS X. My first question would be why bother, since 90% of what makes the machine is the OS. His response?

As to the why … Part of it is simply that I wanted to try something else, and I felt like there were enough people testing the x86 side that it certainly didn’t need me. Part of it is that I personally believe there are two main architectures out there: Power and x86-64 are what _I_ think are the two most relevant ones, and I decided that I had to at least check the other side of it out seriously if I really believed that.

Fair enough.
