[Free OS]New Debian named Squeeze

New version of Debian will be named using Pixar’s animation character. The older version was called Lenny, one of Pixar’s character in Toy Story. Debian’s project maintainer, Luk Claes, announce that next version of Debian will be called “Squeeze”, the three-eyed alien.


As written in Wikipedia, Squeeze is a prize when you win in Pizza Planet restaurant’s game. Here is the quote :

Squeeze Toy Aliens are a bunch of three-eyed space aliens voiced by Jeff Pidgeon in the motion pictures Toy Story and Toy Story 2. These identical toys were prizes in a game of skill at the Pizza Planet restaurant and each one believes that “The Claw” will somehow choose one of them to “go on to a better place.” Three of these toys are rescued by Mr. Potato Head in Toy Story 2 and become attached to him. Mrs. Potato Head chooses to adopt them. They appear to be promotional toys for Pizza Planet, as they wear uniforms with restaurant’s logo. They also appear in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins and the subsequent Buzz Lightyear of Star Command television program. In this series they are an actual alien race and are employed by Star Command as scientists and inventors. They are called “Little Green Men” or “L.G.M.” for short.
