Linux Torvalds now has a dual G5 as his main desktop.

Of course, he's running Linux on it, not OSX.

Interesting article. As for me I like OS X too much to want to replace it with Linux. I will just keep my Linux on my x86 hardware.

Hmmm that is cool...

Always knew Linus could "think different"

And as far as the free DP G5 is concerned - He is the creator of Linux, I bet he has several organisations who are trying to please him :spook:
