Patrick Volkerding, who created Slackware Linux named it based on the term “Slack”, a very important concept of the church of the sub-genius. Slackware’s mascot Tux is smoking a pipe as a direct reference to Bob.

    Slackware!

    1 is the slackware logo, inspired by 2 and the usual tux .
    2 is a picture of Bob, the deity of The Church of the Subgenius. This church is based around the concept of "slack". Patrick Volkerding, the creator of slackware, named Slackware after this concept.
