Interesting to note that the world's most intelligent AI runs on Linux:

IBM is a big proponent of Linux. I didn't know that's what Watson used, but I'm not surprised.

In the demonstration, the experimental low-power processor was used on a PC running Linux OS, powered only off of a solar cell the size of a postage stamp. The processor was used in conjunction with another experimental project, a concept DRAM called the hybrid memory cube, which is a super efficient memory interface.

The chip — codenamed “Claremont” — is known as a near-threshold voltage processor, which allows transistors to operate at super-low, near “threshold” voltages to increase efficiency and decrease energy consumption. This level is very near the voltage at which transistors switch on and start conducting current, which is referred to as the “threshold” voltage.

Several years of research have led to Intel’s near-threshold voltage processor design. It’s heat-sink free, and rather than operating at those super low thresholds all the time, it switches into NTV mode (under 10 mW in power consumption) when its workload is light.
