There was a Hanna Montana Linux once, there's probably a Justin Beiber Linux and a My Little Pony Linux out there somewhere too...

I didn't think most were funny at all. I bought a book once with Caldera Linux bound into it on a CD. I never could get a satisfactory installation. I still have my Red Hat and Slackware books with CDs but the Caldera book went into the trash heap back in 2012. Heck, I even have DR DOS 6.0 bound into a book and Novel DOS 7.0 in a box still shrink wrapped. The Caldera spot got a laugh out of me.

So how can we make a pictorial laughable theme about ours? I think its good to laugh at ourself but not to others. because there is no MX there. We are only laughing at others. add one mx there then its justified. :p
I think MX is so complete that its difficult to Make one :rolleyes:

I also didn't find them funny at all, nor did I identify with any of the slides/pics. Pretty old list.
