I can't help but think of the line from the Hitchiker's Guide to
The Galaxy (Douglas Adams):

"Looks like a cat. Moves like a fish. Steers like a cow."

(Ford Prefect describing the black ship - the one with black
buttons that lit up black to let you know you did something.
Obviously it was designed for a species that could perceive
different wavelengths of the EM spectrum than humans).

Note: I don't in any way feel Linux is a cow. X maybe ;-)

With all these animals, does it mean Linus is "Ol' MacDonald?" :-)

Sorry, I'll be quiet now.
