HAL 9000 is a super computer and the main antagonist in Arthur C. Clarke’s science fiction book, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
A crew set out in a spaceship to Jupiter, and Hal 9000 became corrupt after receiving conflicting orders. As a result, he’s hard and cold, and murdered most of the crew.
HAL is also thought to be a substitute for IBM; HAL becomes IBM if you advance each letter by one.
In this battle, HAL is used as a placeholder for the whole GNU/Linux/Open Source community.
