tux
Tux is the Linux Mascot created by Larry Ewing, and chosen by Linus Torvalds as the Linux mascot because of the endless possibilities of showing Tux. He, unlike a fruit or a piece of glass, is under GPL and is much cooler. People have the rights to show tux in anyway without getting sued and still able to show how awesome he is.
Something Tux could say:

Tux: I've been a mascot, an apple eater, a quake slip-gate ranger, and I have pissed on windows many times. I also flew right through one. Numerous times have I been with hot beautiful female models.

The Operating System that POWERS urbandictionary you assholes.

Go on to www.netcraft.com
Then look up "www.urbandictionary.com" on the web server search. I see SEVEN linux servers, and 2 netbsd/openbsd servers.

I was able to install Mandrake Linux on my computer without any help, BECAUSE I RTFM! Like when I first installed WINDOWS!!

All the people who said shit about linux either:
1) Heard about it from Microsoft
2) Heard about it from SCO
3) Heard about it from some anti-linux group.
4) Saw a friend use Slackware
5) Saw a friend use the terminal.
6) Tried using Slackware as their first distro.

Linux is a great computer for all uses except crashing on you.

Ubuntu, Suse, Mandrake, and MEPIS are great linux distros that offer excellent user friendliness WITH GRAPHICAL TOOLS. So you don't even HAVE TO USE THE FUCKING TERMINAL!!

Only thing you can't do is run Windows stuff, like WINDOWS AIM, and WINDOWS EXPLORER, so don't even try doing stupid ass stuff.
Dumbass:: Linux sucks because there's no aim client.
Me:: Dumbass, AIM FOR LINUX, GAIM, KOPETE, LICQ, and NAIM!

Software that has a source code available to the public.

Giving the public the ability to modify, improve, and fix the program itself. Allowing the creator of the program to not have to find a way to fix the program himself and allowing more patches and improvements to the software.

Also allowing the public to be able to port the program onto other operating systems, so that dual-booters who can program will make a windows version of an awesome GNU/Linux/BSD/Solaris program.

See also open source
My Slackware has the linux source code locate in "/usr/src/linux". I compile my own linux kernal to fit my needs of my computer. Take that M$!

GPL is an example of an open-source license.
