Not content as a mere sideline mascot, Tux now runs Linux


We've always had a soft spot for Tux. Sure he just sits there smugly as we try in vain to install and then use the many flavors of his Linux OS, but he's just so darn cute. Well now he can grace your desktop in all his smugness, as you attempt to execute commands on the PC running inside of him, since Acme Systems is now shipping a Tux-shaped case that holds a tiny single-board computer inside. The case runs for $36, and you can score the company's Acme Fox board for $119 to complete your mini Linux masterpiece. Not exactly a powerhouse with 4MB of flash memory and 16MB of ram, but we're sure you can make some exceptions for the sheer trippiness of owning your very own Linux-running Tux.
