I must admit that logo seemed a bit strange to me when I saw it on the website. Sorta cold and a bit too abstract for my taste. It reminds me of what Mozilla did with their dragon - removed it from the browser's splash-screen because some minority of people thought it was "demonic" or "evil" or something. So sad. I think people need to get over themselves and personally I think the "beastie" is nicely irreverent and has a palpable "personality" one can relate to, especially since you can be sure that very few "gargantuan publicly-held companies" would ever get away with using something similiar. I wonder if anyone has heard Kirk McKusick's input on this.. then again, perhaps he's a bit biased? :-) _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
