    Hot Babe and Debian: A test case for community standards in

    Thibaut Varene didn't mean to start a discussion about free software projects and community standards. But that's what he did when he posted an Intent to Package notice to the Debian-devel list for a novelty program called Hot Babe. The notice resulted in half a dozen threads and hundreds of emails, and an ongoing debate about whether a free software project like Debian should accept packages that are sexist, pornographic, or otherwise potentially offensive -- and who and who would be held to account in any resulting legal action.

    The Web page for Hot Babe describes it as:

    A small graphical utility which displays the system activity in a very special way. When the CPU is idle, it displays a dressed girl, and when the activity goes up, as the temperature increases, the girl begins to undress, to finish totally naked when the system activity reaches 100%.

    Oh, I haven't tested it before now. Needless to say, I am running cpu-intensive programs ONLY right now. And yes, I am bored.
