Bug#55982: penguineyes: has completely crashed my box the only two times I have used it
>> "It has to be one of the most ridiculous programs I've seen in ages"
> The default tux is OK but some of the others are not really good
I agree with both of the above sentiments. :-)
But with that said, I have PenguinEyes loading with X's start on several
machines -- and I've never had a problem with any of them. I was surprised
to see the bug report on it.
FWIW, I've got PenguinEyes running on my laptop, which I often use for
presentations to various audiences. Over various presentations I've given,
I've been interrupted several times by someone in the audience saying,
"Hey, those eyes are moving!" Definately a toy, but also a neat toy.
"If the current stylistic distinctions between open-source and commercial
software persist, an open-software revolution could lead to yet another
divide between haves and have-nots: those with the skills and connections
to make use of free software, and those who must pay high prices for
increasingly dated commercial offerings." -- Scientific American
