I found the following passage in a short story:
Know that there is nothing you may not learn, in putting
yourselves within the triangular webprints of the noble and
courageous penguin. What goodness and example may you not find
there? Name me the penguin which has ever burned down a listed
building by carelessly smoking in bed? Point me out the mocker of
elderly ladies, the jumper of queues, the giver of previously
sucked boiled sweets to little children who ever was revealed to
be a penguin.

by A. L. Kennedy, pub. Vintage, 1995.
Considering the Linux logo is a penguin, I think the title of the
story says a lot about our choice of operating system.
