There are a considerable number of Linux magazines available, in contrast to some vested interest computer magazines which appear to be boycotting Linux for some as yet undisclosed reason. Meanwhile some pro-Linux magazines have an almost revolutionary tone to them and some even include a flag to put up in defiance at the bland microsoftishness persisting in the oldfashioned world.

A penguin? Many sites will tell you about Tux the Linux penguin, but for a long time there have been places whose symbol is a penguin, for example, famously (right), Penguin Books
Linux is pronounced Lin/Ux, according to Linus Torvalds, who invented it. It's sometimes pronounced "Lynux", which is fair enough, I mean, it's open source, so you can pronounce it how you like. But remember that its inventor pronounces it "Linux".
