A counter to Ubuntu products

Postby heiowge » Sun Oct 16, 2011 10:13 am

I have seen loads of pictures in the mag of Ubuntu cola and the like. I just wanted to counter it by showing that many other linux distros have their own products.

These are called "mints":

And this brand of hat is called a "fedora":

Image

And similarly, this is a "red hat":

Image

And lastly we have a "puppy":

It gets worse! Now some film characters have been named after distros!

The guy in the foreground is "Bohdi" from Point Break.

And this loveable chappie is Max "Zorin" from some spy movie or other...

It's a boat full of animals. How many boats full of animals are there that it can cause any confusion? :P

I expect you'll get a flood of replies from people who knowa answer :)
