Linux creator switches to the Mac… nearly

This one made me laugh when I read it in the Windows IT Pro magazine network WinInfo Daily Update:

“The Macintosh community was agog this week at news that Linux creator Linus Torvalds has ‘switched’ to the Mac, but the truth, as is so often the case, is so much less exciting than the rumours. Torvalds is indeed using a Power Mac G5 tower, but some unnamed corporation gave it to him as a gift. And he’s running Linux on the box, not Mac OS X. ‘It obviously runs only Linux, so I don’t think you can call it a Mac any more,’ Linus noted. ‘And … I got the machine for free.’ So much for Apple’s highest-profile switcher.”
