UPDATE: As some readers have pointed out, Switch’s Free BSD kernel is more akin to Unix than to Linux, but the two share lots of similarities.

He knew what a gaming Console was though.

Quote:
The Nintendo Switch Linux OS is used for the “under the hood” aspects of the console, as there is little resemblance to the desktop operating system.
If you parse words it actually is a "Linux Free" BSD kernel, though I agree wholeheartedly he doesn't know frijoles from beans about Linux or BSD and probably never used a "console" as we know them in his life.

A console in the sense of computers is a full-screen Terminal not running X to me.
