Whoa, they have a tux with a lightsaber, a red one:

We all know who use red lightsabers right?
I'm afraid I'll have to switch distro now ;).
Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

Darkstar has been around for a while.
I remember using it before coming to VL.
it seems that they have been inactive for a couple years though

No, but try topping a tux with a lightsaber. Not even a ninja-robot-pirate-zombie-tux could beat that. But at least we don't have an ugly purple prune...

You know I've seen a few people with the sig:  "Ubuntu is an African word meaning 'Slackware is too hard for me.'"  At least we don't have that stigma.

Besides ... hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good distro at your side, kid.

Dude ... "lightsaver" ? ... you've just had your membership to the International Dork Society suspended, pending review.

I challenge you with my BFG9000.

All right ... I've just got a call from the committee.  They said because of the Doom reference you're back in.

Be careful, Joe. He also can use the force, and he is on the dark side.

But I wasn't the one with the Jedi goof... ;)

So? Have you ever seen a BFG9000 take out a room-full of Caco-daemons and what-nots?... ;D

D'oh!  My mistake, Joe1962.

Okay, you two fight it out with the "lightsaver" and the BFG9000, and whoever wins will be given the 2008 Dork of the Year Award.

Oh yeah? Well I killed my former bandmate with a knife and burned an old stave church down. Top that.
