There weren't a lot of interesting prints this go-round. We now have
some for Linux 2.6.31 and Mac OS X 10.6. Here are other noteworthy ones.

Linux 1.0.9
        This is our first Linux 1.0 fingerprint. I asked the submitter
        the circumstances of how he had it running, and he said he
        recently reinstalled his first copy of Slackware on a 486. Linux
        1.0.9 dates from April 1994. linux-1.0.tar.gz is only 1.2 MB.

Android 1.5 (Linux 2.6.27)
        This appears to be distinguishable from generic Linux systems.

HP MPE/iX 7.5
        On operating system for the HP 3000, a "minicomputer."

ReactOS 0.3.7
        This is a free operating system based on the architecture of
        Windows NT.
