Linux father is no longer programming. Linus Torvalds spoke about his activities

He mainly writes and reads emails

Linus Torvalds, the legendary founding father of Linux, spoke with VMware Vice President Dirk Hohndel at the Open Source Summit / Embedded Linux Conference Europe.

During the conversation, Torvalds talked about his work and debunked the existing myth that he still devotes a lot of time to programming. Many users believe this because Linux kernel updates go through his hands. Torvalds explained that he actually doesn’t program at all now and spends most of his time reading and writing emails.

Torvalds stated:

I read letters, I write letters, but I no longer do programming at all.

He also noted that if he writes the code, then this mainly happens in the email client during the discussion of the next code proposals. Torvalds emphasized: “I am no longer a programmer.”

In May, Torvalds made a sensational announcement, announcing that he had traded Intel for AMD for the first time in 15 years.
