|Linus Torvalds interview - the early years|
|Monday, 27 September 2010|
Hear Linus Torvalds discuss his early years with a Sinclair QL and his envy for the Commodore 64.
Later in the week when they were waiting to go on a safari at the Sao Paolo Zoo, Jeremy seized the opportunity to go on a trip down memory lane when he asked Linus about the Sinclair QL they both owned while growing up. Because it was so hard to get software for it in Finland, Linus wrote his own assembler and editor (in addition to Pac-Man graphics libraries). They continue to reminisce about more archaic hardware like floppy drives, microdrives, 512 K RAM expansion packs and the Acorn Archimedes.
