  • No LinuxWorld quiz would be complete without a picture of the founding father of Linux, Linus Torvalds. Allison displayed this image of Torvalds, in response to one question and proclaimed, "I think we should hail our glorious leader."

  • The Oracle nerds had a strong lead over the MySQL geeks for most of the quiz, but the geeks managed to pull ahead in the final round of the contest to walk away with the prize of the golden penguins.
