“Linux usage keeps changing. Linux today is very different from even ten years ago,” Torvalds added. “I hope it will continue to meet new use cases.“
During the session, Torvalds also explained why he became a developer in the first place. He said that when he started, he didn’t have money to run Unix on his own machine. He also noted that his friends were playing games on their computers that he couldn’t afford, so he had to learn to program. “Necessity made me try to do something,” Torvalds said.
