South Chilean penguin strays to Peru

Filed under
Misc

A Magellanic penguin has stunned scientists by showing up in Peru, some 5,000 kilometers (3,000 miles) from home in southern Chile.

The penguin "got off course," said Miguel Lleellish, of the National Institute of Natural Resources told AFP.

The penguin appeared to have been acting alone and not as part of a migration, he said.

The bird, so far unnamed, has taken up residence in the reserve, but Orosco fears that the undue attention could be worse for the penguin than the change in climate, possibly causing a fatal case of stress.

Full Story.



Typical of the Linux user

The penguin is well chosen as the Linux mascot as this specimen shows, demonstrating the enterprise, courage, eccentricity and foolhardiness of the typical Linux user.

Our Favourite Apps for Ubuntu

We enjoy using Ubuntu mainly for gaming, writing, listening to music and browsing the web. (Lots and lots of browsing the web.) There are other apps that we would love to have on Ubuntu like Affinity Photo, a stunning image editor that’s on par with Adobe’s Photoshop that’s available on Windows and Mac as well as Bear, a beautifully designed note taking app that we do most of our writing on that’s only available for macOS. However, the Ubuntu platform has moved forward in leaps and bounds in recent years when it comes to the official availability of popular apps and we are confident that this trend will continue.
