Sir,

Firstly, may I suggest you visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penguins
for information. There are enough and more links at the bottom of the
page you can follow to get the required information.

And INCASE you do not get the required information, may I request you to
contact

_*Animal Planet*_
(http://animal.discovery.com/utilities/about/contact.html)

or

_*National Geographic*_ (askngs at nationalgeographic.com).

THEY are the RIGHT people to answer your queries.

I suppose people on the list are not interested in preambles and
background information!!

If you were trying to convert a windoze user to linux and needed help
there, I suggest you asking questions directly instead of beating around
the bush.

You asked the wrong question on this list. I suppose you know very well
about that.

I suppose you have not read enough to know why a TUX was put up as a
Mascot by Mr. Linus!!

Sir, I also sincerely suggest to end this topic here.
