The Interocitor (maybe ???)

on the bottom:
Select an OS to Boot, or hit <tab> for a lilo prompt

The implication being that Slackware-13.37 is better than these others because it is the default choice.

COLOSSUS was the computer used during WWII to crack German teletype ciphers. HAL 9000 is the insane computer from the movie 2001. Guardian i think was the OS/virus in "The Net". not sure about the other two, but surprised SkyNet and VIKI weren't included.

Colossus could also be making reference to the Forbin project, which was a movie about an evil super computer.

Didn't know that one.

And Mother is the computers name in the Alien movie.

Don't forget the meta-Slackware-reference: "Mother" is the ship's computer in the film "Dark Star".

My fault Seems like Alien already referenced that one five years later. That computer was obviously called MU-TH-R...
