Could the Slackware one imply that harder nerds/geeks are more fond of this specific Linux distro? 01:00, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Perhaps he's also implying aliens use OLPC? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I think the Xandros/EEE PC vulnerability "gives access if asked in a stern voice" is a reference to comic 413: New Pet, where Cueball and Megan made a pet out of a EEE PC on wheels inside a hamster ball. Pets sometimes need to be talked to sternly if they're unwilling to obey commands; in this case, a EEE PC needs to be talked to sternly in order to give the commander root access.

The Gentoo explanation does not make sense. Gentoos succumbing to flattery should mean the users use flattery on the Gentoo, not the other way around. --flewk (talk) 16:43, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
