Is Torvolds on any distro?
 
Does Linus Torvolds maintain any distribution? I always thought he had a connection to Slackware, but I am probably wrong. :Pengy:

Linus Torvalds does not maintain or work with any distribution. In fact, he tries not to even say what distribution he uses, probably because of the ensuing war. :)

All Linus does is write/maintain the kernel, for which we cannot possibly thank him enough.

All you want to now, and more.......

Last I heard he bought a new Mac, so who knows if that has changed but who really cares what one person uses, I don't understand the fascination people have with the well known peeps, wanting to know all the details they can about them.. as if they were a stalker.... ;)

Which distribution do you prefer, use?

I get that question all the time because I don't want to answer Red
Hat or SuSE or something else. I actually run different distributions on
my machines so that I can honestly say that, ok, at work I happen to have
Red Hat, at home I have SuSE, I have Caldera, I have Mandrake. I don't
actually have any trouble switching between distributions.

That article is 5 years old.

In the last few months, he was given a dual cpu Mac and that is what he uses now.

Doesn't make it any less irrelevant. If he had that mentality then, he has the same now.

Which was my point exactly. He's trying not to lead a holy war of distributions... the kernel is enough for him.

This is a incorrect conclusion. He can change his mind. Said that, he may not because he expresed very well thought ideas.
