I also would like to spend some Debian money on a contest,
the FreeBSD logo contest , to create a friendly mascot for the
project (in a similar way to the Linux penguin or the GNU gnu)
can use where the logo is not enough. More on this in a few days.
The Debian Swirl reminds me of some kind of worm or shellfish.
The Debian HookWorm?
The Debian RingWorm? Digs into your Sole (Soul)? Lord of the
The Debian Tapeworm? Makes you hungry for more!
The Debian Krill? (Eaten by Puffy?)
If it's a bear, I'd be happy to provide the live mascot for
someone picks up travel costs!
I would like to see a bear logo. Not a care bear, but something like a
grizzly bear. I think the temperament of the grizzly suits Debian: it
rules the world for a few months and then goes into hibernation. (I'm
suggesting this is a good thing). It doesn't need to eat half its body
weight every day, like a bird. i.e.: It doesn't lust after the latest
and greatest "features" or obsess about its plumage.
So in the grizzly bear you have a creature that is soft and furry but
can also rip your head off.
