Has the X Nature

/has t͟hə eks nā-chər/

[seems to derive from Zen Buddhist koans of the form "Does an X have the Buddha-nature?"]

adj. Common hacker construction for 'is an X', used for humorous emphasis. "Anyone who can't even use a program with on-screen help embedded in it truly has the loser nature!"

See also the X that can be Y is not the true X.
