Tux's Dream

Filed under
Humor

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.

Kali Linux 2020.1 Release

We are here to kick off our first release of the decade, with Kali Linux 2020.1! Available for immediate download. Throughout the history of Kali (and its predecessors BackTrack, WHAX, and Whoppix), the default credentials have been root/toor. This is no more. We are no longer using the superuser account, root, as default in Kali 2020.1. The default user account is now a standard, unprivileged, user. For more of the reasons behind this switch, please see our previous blog post. As you can imagine, this is a very large change, with years of history behind it. As a result, if you notice any issues with this, please do let us know on the bug tracker. Read more
