Parent article: What you can do for "Lenny"
We should save him! Will the old clothes help? Or will he need shelter first? May be we should call Red Cross
Well this is a Linux publication, so what would your guess be?
Whilst I hate for this to turn into some slashdotesk flaming, you're both blatently just being difficult. I knew what was meant by Lenny (enough within the context) and I haven't used a Linux distribution in years (I compile everything from the source at the top of the stream), so there's no way it's only people using Debian that would know what it is.
I don't think it's a failure on the part of the editor to assume that readers of a regular Linux publication have a bell or two ring when reading "Lenny", I believe it a failure on the reader if a bell or two doesn't, at least I fail to understand why you'd be reading here without cursory knowledge of one of the more major distributions, as it doesn't really indicate much interest for the subject.
