    Linus T., What does he use?

    I was just curious as to what flavor of linux does Linus use. Does he use a custom built, such as LFS or RH?

    Anybody know?

    I believe he uses Mandrake - he said that he just wanted something that works because he doesn't have time to play around with things and just wants his OS to work. (I believe that is his work box at Transmeta)

    Well, he might use Mandy now, but I guess he must qualify as the original LFS'er

    Right now I think he uses SuSE, but he has used RedHat and Mandy in the past (or so I've heard).

    one things for sure... I'm glad his system just works, so he can spend all that spare time of his developing 2.5

    To his credit he has created the soul of the beast that will take down the Redmond beast. But with full distros, he's in the same boat as us minions. He doesn't work on full distros themselves so he has to choose just like the rest of us. I doubt you could consider what the man uses for his personal distro as some kind of "Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval." Hell I've got my Debian and Mandrake installs tinkered so they work almost identical, aside from supermount and my sound server issue in Debian.
