  • Bought this pack a few years back. Sticker bombed my laptop. Guess I'll have to get another laptop.

  • Thanks op, I used to have trouble telling people that I use arch.

  • Love these stickers. Bought!

  • Can we buy more than one?
    It adds them all to my cart separate.

      • I am still failing to see the value proposition for buying so many sticker packs. Even if you were to resell them for under a dollar it would be ~50 cents max profit for an item with low demand.

        Seems to me like a waste of money. Only a handful of the stickers are decent anyway.

          • @mw13: Interesting. I am surprised people would buy them off special as they seem to go to $1 a few times every year.

            Good luck selling 133+ packs I guess.

            Not exactly Broden, but close.

  • bought one, but not sure where will I stick them yet.

  • Add a "sample pack" for another $1….!

  • echo "I've order a pack Cheers!" }:)

  • Hope they update it for ZSH instead of BASH 😅

  • Nice. Last time i bought magnetic paper to stick these on to, and then turned them into fridge magnets.

    • That's a fantastic idea. Where can I get magnetic paper? Spotlight?

      • I got it on ebay for like 1 dollar per sheet. It is kind of glossy and you are supposed to be able to print on it, but i just put the stickers on it and then used a sharp knife/tool/thing to cut along the edges. It's not a super strong magnet, but good enough to stay in place on the fridge door.

    • Why? Only your family that can see the fridge, while stick it at the back of the laptop, the possibilities are limitless, friends, future boy/girlfriend, future boss, alien, apple fanboy, etc etc :)

  • My Windows laptop is all patched with Unix stickers. Is this a betrayal?

  • i have absolutely no need for this. with that said, in for 1. :)
    wish it had an apple sticker though :(

    • I imagine these stickers are licenced so getting apple on board would be impossible.

    • You get an Apple sticker in every new iPhone box. I always throw mine away as I’m too embarrassed to let people know I have an Apple product.

  • I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

    Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called Linux, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

    There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called Linux distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux!

    • Keep talking! I'm almost there!

    • Is that you RMS?

    • No, Richard, it's 'Linux', not 'GNU/Linux'. The most important contributions that the FSF made to Linux were the creation of the GPL and the GCC compiler. Those are fine and inspired products. GCC is a monumental achievement and has earned you, RMS, and the Free Software Foundation countless kudos and much appreciation.

      Following are some reasons for you to mull over, including some already answered in your FAQ.

      One guy, Linus Torvalds, used GCC to make his operating system (yes, Linux is an OS — more on this later). He named it 'Linux' with a little help from his friends. Why doesn't he call it GNU/Linux? Because he wrote it, with more help from his friends, not you. You named your stuff, I named my stuff — including the software I wrote using GCC — and Linus named his stuff. The proper name is Linux because Linus Torvalds says so. Linus has spoken. Accept his authority. To do otherwise is to become a nag. You don't want to be known as a nag, do you?

      (An operating system) != (a distribution). Linux is an operating system. By my definition, an operating system is that software which provides and limits access to hardware resources on a computer. That definition applies whereever you see Linux in use. However, Linux is usually distributed with a collection of utilities and applications to make it easily configurable as a desktop system, a server, a development box, or a graphics workstation, or whatever the user needs. In such a configuration, we have a Linux (based) distribution. Therein lies your strongest argument for the unwieldy title 'GNU/Linux' (when said bundled software is largely from the FSF). Go bug the distribution makers on that one. Take your beef to Red Hat, Mandrake, and Slackware. At least there you have an argument. Linux alone is an operating system that can be used in various applications without any GNU software whatsoever. Embedded applications come to mind as an obvious example.

      Next, even if we limit the GNU/Linux title to the GNU-based Linux distributions, we run into another obvious problem. XFree86 may well be more important to a particular Linux installation than the sum of all the GNU contributions. More properly, shouldn't the distribution be called XFree86/Linux? Or, at a minimum, XFree86/GNU/Linux? Of course, it would be rather arbitrary to draw the line there when many other fine contributions go unlisted. Yes, I know you've heard this one before. Get used to it. You'll keep hearing it until you can cleanly counter it.

      You seem to like the lines-of-code metric. There are many lines of GNU code in a typical Linux distribution. You seem to suggest that (more LOC) == (more important). However, I submit to you that raw LOC numbers do not directly correlate with importance. I would suggest that clock cycles spent on code is a better metric. For example, if my system spends 90% of its time executing XFree86 code, XFree86 is probably the single most important collection of code on my system. Even if I loaded ten times as many lines of useless bloatware on my system and I never excuted that bloatware, it certainly isn't more important code than XFree86. Obviously, this metric isn't perfect either, but LOC really, really sucks. Please refrain from using it ever again in supporting any argument.

      Last, I'd like to point out that we Linux and GNU users shouldn't be fighting among ourselves over naming other people's software. But what the heck, I'm in a bad mood now. I think I'm feeling sufficiently obnoxious to make the point that GCC is so very famous and, yes, so very useful only because Linux was developed. In a show of proper respect and gratitude, shouldn't you and everyone refer to GCC as 'the Linux compiler'? Or at least, 'Linux GCC'? Seriously, where would your masterpiece be without Linux? Languishing with the HURD?

      If there is a moral buried in this rant, maybe it is this:

      Be grateful for your abilities and your incredible success and your considerable fame. Continue to use that success and fame for good, not evil. Also, be especially grateful for Linux' huge contribution to that success. You, RMS, the Free Software Foundation, and GNU software have reached their current high profiles largely on the back of Linux. You have changed the world. Now, go forth and don't be a nag.

      Thanks for listening.

    • We live in a world where people think Google Android is open source when by definition to be called Google Android it cannot be open source.

      People are mostly sheep believing every PR campaign ever created.

      • But isn't it the same as Ubuntu and Redhat then? Google own Android like how Canonical own Ubuntu and IBM now own Redhat. But their products are open source, anyone can take it, use it, edit it, contribute to it, distribute it under a different name.

      • Im not sure you understand what open source means.
        Or the phrase "by definition".

  • I have no idea why I keep buying these, but I do. MY daughter loves them! They are cheaper than the crap you get in the newsagent/supermarket, better quality, and more interesting.

    • I barely use the actual products those stickers represent… but they look cool. I don't deserve to have Python or Arch stickers on my laptop. Oh well.

  • Any other packs available or just these unix ones. Will get this one for sure.

  • Of course, only the $33 pack has a FreeBSD sticker…

  • Got 2x packs. thanks, OP.

  • Did not receive mine yet,

    Anyone else in the same boat ?

  • Parcel reached Australia 8/7/20. Still in transit.

  • Got mine in the mail today, surprisingly it comes with 2x of these stickers.
