Does Linus Run Linux Mint?

Filed under
Linux

Last week we discovered that Linus Torvalds has dumped the GNOME desktop for Xfce. Now today we find that he has dumped Fedora for Linux Mint.

It was known for several years that Linus ran Fedora, he had stated so in interviews. He told Caitlyn Martin, "I've used different distributions over the years. Right now I happen to use Fedora 9 on most of the computers I have, which really boils down to the fact that Fedora had fairly good support for PowerPC back when I used that, so I grew used to it."

So like most folks I guess, I just thought Linus must still be using Fedora. That was until today when Marcel Gagné, well known author and columnist, said in post on desktop preferences that Linus now uses Linux Mint.
