Re: [Devel] We do need a "mascot"

I'm not trying to be rude or offensive or anything, and I'm all for heritage, but it seems that tux is a bit more universal. I love eating a kobold as much as the next @, even if it is somtimes poisioned and makes me sit. But Tux is tux. Unique mascots are great, but Add a grad cap, blackboard in the background, teacher's pointer stick and sit him on a book and you have a Tux that says "Linux" and props that say "Education." A Kobold doesn't mean much to people outside of Europe. Not many will "get it." Now don't get me wrong, I think Skole is great. I'm even considering registering www.SchoolLinux.org for American complimentary site for the sake of unification and the similar goals. But I'm also trying to look way down the road. Take this to the world, so to speak. "Teacher Tux" just seems a bit better. An opinion, for sure, but penguins sure are cuddly. Kobolds, on the other hand... ;)

For me it's a friendly smiling Kobold. :o)

So what if we will drop his horns and give him a elfin cap. The small version of what Robin Hood and his men where wearing.

May be we should ask some kids... :o)
