    I always laugh when I see this. How is a Linux system displayed?

    @eeee Anything with SMB/CIFS is considered as a PC on macOS, I have a Raspberry Pi which also is displayed like this. I can test other sharing protocols of you have sth in mind :)

    @XiovV Your phone and gaming console are also PCs. Everything that's not meant for public use, and can compute things, is a personal computer.

    @XiovV “Personal Computer” is a trademarked marketing term belonging to IBM. Hence, while the form factors and market segments largely converge, PC == Microsoft remains largely accurate.

    The architectures are the same for like 20 years now and they still insist on calling anything not Mac a "PC". As if Macs were carved from an alien technology.
