Woz getting old?

๐Ÿ•š๏ธŽ - 2009-05-01

Apparantly Steve Wozniak is too busy dancing and living it up to learn new things:

"Steve Wozniak: I never got into Linux. I swear to God, it's only lack of time. I'm past the years of my life where I can really dig into something like running a Linux system. I'm very sympathetic to the whole idea; Linux people always think the way I want to think."

I guess when you have his background, it's kind of okay...

Another answer in the interview at lifehacker can be read in multiple ways:

"Does that relate to how you see the future of server-based computer, "cloud computing"? Richard Stallman is certainly concerned about the privacy and security issues there.
Steve Wozniak: Well, I tend to agree with Stallman, but ... I do think that it really is the end of the line. I don't know if that's good or bad for us, but it seems like the future direction."

Guess which one I prefer to choose? :-)

Finally an nice answer relating to open source:

"When we first started with Apple computers, it was my dream that everyone would learn to program, and that was how they'd use their computer. But, obviously, that's not the way it turned out. That's where I think we see the advantages of open-source software. I think it's a great thing, and a lot of companies are using mySQL, open-source software, and, well, Linux, too, to make the software work exactly the way they need it to.

That kind of hacking is the center of my heart, that's who I am."
