Just came across this


What is the name of this cute penguin?(Please refer to the pic on left)
a) Linux
b) Tux
c) Toto

The cute little penguin is the official logo of Linux.
Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, chose Larry Ewing's design
simply because he likes penguins. It is said that the name Tux was the
winning entry in the 'Let's Name The Penguin While Linus Is Away
Contest' with the 'T' standing for Torvalds and the 'U' and 'X' for

wonder if the quizmaster was tux friendly!
