What about Powr architecture

It would have been very interesting and informative to hear Linus Torvald's opinion about the IBM Powr CPU based architecture, especially because IBM has invested tens of hundreds of millions $$dollars in optimizing Linux for that architecture, which has been "openly" license to any organization/corporations and or governments - now dozens - without previous licensing/royalty restrictions.

Maybe Torvalds has very little direct hands-on experience with the Linux/Powr architecture, and therefore feels left out.
