has the X nature [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.
