Do you know someone who hates every commercial operating system with a passion that borders on the manic? Do they own a fleet of laptops, netbooks, and desktop PCs all loaded up with different Linux distros? If so, your holiday shopping just got a heck of a lot easier. Active Media Products just released the perfect gift for Linux nerds young and old.

Of course, the actual product wasn't made with Linux users in mind. Active Media teamed up with the WWF (not the wrestling federation, the World Wildlife Fund) to make a bunch of USB drives themed after endangered animals. A portion of the proceeds from sales will go to the WWF to help stop cute animals like the Penguin from dying out.

There are four different versions of the Penguin USB drive available; 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB versions. The 8GB version will retail for around $26 dollars, and all versions are available right now from and other retailers.
