Tux Machines (TM)-specific
The Linux community and indeed the Open Source community in general is comprised of many different types of people. Their way of life, philosophy, age and location all vary widely with as many variations as the human face. However like the human face it can be categorized in a broad manner and stuffed into rather large boxes.
This is my attempt at categorizing the face of Linux into four general areas. The Slasher, Basher, Butcher and Pusher. These are by no means definitive and any one person can fit into multiple or even all of these arbitrary titles. So take a deep breath, a pinch of salt and delve into the twisted psych of Locutus's mind. Don't forget it is all a case of mind over matter. If you don't mind, then it doesn't matter.
These individuals love to live on the cutting edge of Linux. They must have the latest release of any program and will go to great lengths and spend a lot of time to make sure they get what they want.
