Webmasters have it easy, you get plenty of resolution on the Web and as many colors as you want for free, and you can print as many copies as you want for nothing. The real litmus test will be if they come out with stickers that people have to pay for, to see if those last as a product, and when companies print up sales literature that they have to pay for printing costs on, whether they choose the sex toy or Beastie. My guess is it will be a long, long time before you see CDROMs from anybody that have deleted Beastie and have the sex toy. The one good thing about all this nonsense is that 5 years from now when there are still hundreds of websites, marketing materials, presentations, CDROMs, and such that prominently feature Beastie, it will pretty much pull the fangs of the argument that "we need to replace Beastie as a logo because as a devil he's causing too many people to not use FreeBSD" which was the main argument that triggered the entire contest and it's sex toy result.
