"Cute" doesn't mean "cute"

Howdy --

There was a bit of a language barrier in your interview with Shuttleworth. When he said "cute," he didn't mean adorable. He meant clever -- it's another meaning of cute, not used in the U.S., often used in the UK. It was once used in the U.S.; very good technical boxers might have been called "cute," which just mean they were very good strategic fighters.
