Linus uses Pine (well, actually, Alpine)


From APC magazine:

APC: What software do you use everyday? Your browser, desktop (if any), email client and so on?

LT: Well, ignoring the actual development stuff (make, compiler, editor etc), it ends up being mostly just xterms and “alpine” (the newer version of the venerable old “pine” email reader. Strictly text-based, thank you very much).

And yes, a browser is mostly open in the background. There’s a few technical discussion forums I’m active on when I have nothing better to do (or when I do have better things to do but get frustrated with them 😉 , and then the normal “random” sites (boing boing etc).
