tux(s) saying hello

Hey, I was just wondering if anybody else noticed what the number of tuxes in the console mean when you have the frame buffer enabled. Now, if I had not had 3 computers running slackware, I may not have noticed this with each computer having a different number of tuxes sitting at the top. Until it dawned on me after I booted the server. "Ahhh yes of course! it's the number of cpus! my laptop has 1 32 bit single core, my tower has 1 dual core 64, and my server has 2 dual core 32s!"

I was just wondering if anybody else noticed this without reading some forum message.

I did notice it, and I did figure it out without help. That's mostly because I've booted Linux on machines with multiple cores as well as 1 core.


console, cpu, framebuffer, tux
