    RE: Origin of Tux the Penguin Logo?
    Ah-so! Thank you, I read the link, very interesting! And yeah, he kind of does look like he just had a very good time with a female penguin, and a smoke and a nap too! Thanks again!

    Origin of Tux the Penguin Logo?
    Hello, [i]new bee[/i] here. I was wondering if anyone knows why a penguin was chosen as the Linux logo? I like Tux and think he's cool, but from a marketing standpoint, isn't a "flightless" bird kind of like a car company namning a new model "Impact"? Maybe Linux Marketing can use a sloglan like, [b]"If your old OS doesn't fly and just sux, switch to Linux and leave the flying to Tux."[/b] Thank you. I'm here all week.
