my co-worker's mouth. Small para to be added:
Regarding the selection of his logo by the Debian project, Raul said,
"I'm very pleased that we're able to give something back to the Debian
community. We've been very happy with Debian GNU/Linux, and have been
working with it internally, and for our clients, for a number of years
