Eunux is an operating system in Grand Theft Auto IV. It is a clear parody of the Linux operating system. The OS was created in the early 1990s by a Scandinavian teenager named Eunus, a play on Linux kernel architect Linus Torvalds. Eunux's mascot is Sux the Sea Cucumber, which parodies Linux's mascot Tux the Penguin. Like the real-life OS, Eunux is available in several distributions, including RedTwat, Ucuntu, Slackcrack, and Knobbix, which are parodies of Red Hat, Ubuntu, Slackware, and Knoppix, respectively. Eunux's main website, www.eunux.net, details the history and goals of the Eunux OS and its community. The website makes fun of the misconception that Linux is a difficult operating system to learn. Eunux is considered the male-only world of open source software and discourages females from using the OS. Eunux is also a word pun on "eunuchs", or castrated individuals.
