Short bio: Computer Scientist, FOSS supporter (read more)
Tux Machines (TM)-specific
a fat, little penguin, dressed up quite spiffy
had too many computers, some of them quite iffy.
their conditions ranged from old thing to new
how to run them all, he wasn't sure what to do.
he had all kinds of advice from penguins everywhere
some from the big city and some from town here.
Most of the penguins,thought they were helping, would say
"make it do wonders" and "make it my way"
this chubby little genius, thought all he could
and finally came up with an idea, it'll work, it should.
a system to make all these pc's work well
it will be super fancy, yet simple as hell.
It will work for them in the city, with all their big hi tech
it'll do for the town folk, straight forward, not a pain in the neck.
It'll be as complex or plain as can be
and to show what a nice penguin he was, he'd even make it free.
so he started to work, then asked some friends
and their friends asked their friends
who asked yet more friends again
as the system improved, he'd test it on those machines
then gave them away, to those who helped and those in need
as the system gets better, and fills so many needs
more penguins arrive to tell of more needs, indeed
and all of these penguins, pitch in as they can,
building a dream, as best as they can.
and all of them were happy as though their dream was his
the truth of it though, the reality is
each has their own way of thinking and dream
this system brings them together as one it would seem
your dream and my dream varied though they may be,
can share the same framework and tools it would seem
This fat little penguin has made something unique
an operating system for every kind of geek.
you want it to do this way and I to do that
it will do things his way and hers off the bat
so many different ways it can get all this done
all wrapped into this system making them all one.
