An Interview With Linus Torvalds | TechCrunch


I’m have to admit being a bit baffled by how nobody else seems to have done what Apple did with the Macbook Air – even several years after the first release, the other notebook vendors continue to push those ugly and *clunky* things. Yes, there are vendors that have tried to emulate it, but usually pretty badly. I don’t think I’m unusual in preferring my laptop to be thin and light.

Really fascinating interview with the father of Linux. He discusses all manner of things including his project management style, the future of “disposable” computers, and how he works from home and gets things done. But, he spends the first couple of questions talking about his love of the MacBook Air and his general disdain for just about every other laptop being made (i.e. Specifically, anything that is not the MacBook Air).

    To be totally fair, though, Linus runs Fedora on his Air. He might like the hardware, but like most people in the Linux...
