Happy World Penguin Day!

April 25th is World Penguin Day, the day when Adélie Penguins from Antartica begin their migration northwards in search for food, giving continuity to the species interesting lifecycle of hunting, mating, birthing and raising their own.

Tux, the Linux Mascot

Though the similarities are little in my view, I feel we Linux Users should pay more attention to this amazing bird that we have taken mascot of, not only for the Tux connection but also due to the fact that climate change extinction will likely start affecting those guys first before other species realize it's too late.

So this Sunday, take the time to appreciate a little more of these amazing species, just like we usually stop to appreciate the impact of Linux and the Free Software movement in our lives. Perhaps have a look at the March of the Penguins documentary, perhaps there are some full videos available on YouTube.

Me, I'm going to try out Alpine Linux on another machine and see how it goes as a desktop.

Happy World Penguin Day 2021!
