Top 5 Linux references in pop-culture

Filed under
Linux

That ubiquitous Linux! It's on your computer, your mobile phone, your handheld GPS. What's more, it's also in movies, cartoons, comics and books around you too! Here are my top 5 Linux references as found in popular culture.

#5 – Dilbert

On the 24th June, 1995, Dilbert’s companion, Wally, came across a portly bearded fellow of a certain age, perhaps somewhat like Santa Claus but darker and with an edge about him. The scruffy beard, the suspenders and the smug expression all combined to give him away.

#4 – The Mighty Avengers
