[ltp] Humor - Free the Code

Actually the little flash animation that pertains to us in particular
is "Meditation." Where one penguin shows his fellow penguin seekers
of inner peace the nirvana that is Linux on a ThinkPad. They've got
to be ThinkPads...it's IBM, right?
You gotta love IBM, man...they are the best evangelists Linux has
ever had. They're committed...and they've got tons of money to throw
at animators to do cute little flash animations.
However, if that 3D animated penguin doing the James Brown moves was
animated in, say, Blender, and they said so, it would have been even
cooler. Maybe next time they should encourage people to use Free/Open
Source Software tools to make projects like these.
