Linus uses Fedora August 18, 2008

Posted by razasayed in general.

I recently came across an interesting interview of Linus Torvalds, where he says that the distro he uses is Fedora Core 9 . Being a person who has a very specialized area of work i.e. the Linux kernel, he says he doesnt care much about distros as long as they are easy to install and use, so that he can focus on his core line of work instead of bothering with the rest of the details.

He also added that as far as user friendliness goes there are others also like Ubuntu, and now Debian also, but the reason he uses Fedora is purely historic as it had good support for PowerPC back when he was using one.

You can check out the interview at http://www.simple-talk.com/opinion/geek-of-the-week/linus-torvalds,-geek-of-the-week/.

Hope u enjoy reading it 🙂
