Man From L.I.N.U.X. Homepage

Just what is Linux?

Just what is Open Source?

Linux and Open Source Links

What's in a name? Everything! It represents the very character of the organization. Playing on the "Man from U.N.C.L.E." theme, you can think of us as an organization that is out to make things right with the world. It is not too difficult to search out what the UNCLE acronym stands for, but now is your chance to be creative.

What does "L.I.N.U.X." stand for?

How about "Linux Is Not Unix - eXcellent!"? We really like that recursive part - it's very GNUish.

Maybe "Linux Is Nice Unix - eXcellent!"?

If you have any ideas, please send them to This is just for fun, but we can probably reward you in some way if your name suggestion is used.
