What is Pinoy?

Filipinos are the citizens of the Philippines, located in Southeast Asia. Colloquially, Filipinos may refer to themselves as Pinoy which is formed by taking the last four letters of Pilipino and adding the diminutive suffix -y. The word was coined by expatriate Filipino Americans during the 1920s and was later adopted by Filipinos in the Philippines.

What is Tux?

Tux (also known as Tux the Penguin) is the official mascot of the Linux kernel. He is represented as an average penguin sitting on the ground with his flippers up.
