There is a thing called Microsoft Agent. It is an animated bird that talks (TTS). Here is a link: http://www.microsoft.com/msagent/default.asp
Is there something like that on linux. Like a talking penguin I got my MEPIS system setup to where it is almost like my XP one (in functionality). The only thing I a missing is TTS and few other titbits.
Any ideas, perhaps there is a port. I know that festival is one of the better TTS systems for linux, but by god I want a talking penguin :)
