[IBM] AMBRA Sprinta 486
This PC (Intel 80486
SX @ 25
Mbytes memory, 100
Mbytes hard disk)
was used by Linus Torvalds at the Department of Computer Science
while he was working on the
early versions of the Linux kernel.
The device is currently on display at the
Helsinki University Museum*
The PC name “humalluoto” refers (like all PC names at the time at the CS Department)
to a small island in the Helsinki archipelago.
