Tux , the Linux penguin
Tux is a penguin character and the official mascot of the Linux kernel. Originally created as an entry to a Linux logo competition, Tux is the most commonly used icon for Linux, although different Linux distributions depict Tux in various styles. In video games featuring the character, female counter parts, named Penny and Gown, accompany him. The character is used in many other Linux programs and as a general symbol of Linux.
Tux Video games
Tux has taken on a role in the Linux community similar to that which Mario holds in the Nintendo community. He has been featured in open-source look-alikes of other mainstream games, such as Tux Racer, Extreme Tux Racer, Tux Math, SuperTux, Super Tux Kart, and Tux Paint. As such, several computer games, mostly free and open source and/or for Linux, have starred Tux, including:
* Tux, of Math Command: a free software math tutoring arcade game.
* Tux Typing: a free software educational game designed to teach typing.
* Wormux: A turn-based strategy game inspired by Worms, featuring many free and open source software mascots, including Tux.
* Frozen Bubble: A free software puzzle game, featuring Tux-esque penguins.
* LinCity-NG: A free software strategy game that allows you to build a Tux statue.
