It's a logo. Look at other people using penguins as logos: what does it  
have to do with books, or with debuggers?

For that matter, why choose a read hat or a bitten apple not only as logo,  
but as company name?

It has something to do with the system? This not only isn't obvious, it is  
actually hard to believe. Care to explain?

As to professional, the Linux penguin looks at least as professional to  
me.

And lastly, there seems to be something missing there. Maybe you forgot to  
limit your line length?
