Good grief...

How could you even CONSIDER Tux not being the best mascot ever? Sheesh.

re: good grief

Which tux?

Some are cute, some are artistic, most are so ugly even a mother penguin wouldn't love them.

re: Good grief...

well, yes, of course. But he's the generic Linux mascot and I suppose I was trying to poll on the distribution specifics. I thought of including Tux, but decided against it.

When all those stars and

When all those stars and curlies and gs and lizards and whatsoever die out, you'll all be glad to know it's just the circle of life. bummer Smile

Actually, even though I use Ubuntu and voted for Debian, I like the Scientific Linux logo - it looks like ReactOS.

Mascot/logo

I like the Foresight Linux 'Eagle Eye F'. The Fedora and Chameleon are probably next in line.

re: Mascot

It's not a lizard, it's a chameleon...

My vote goes to the old FreeBSD devil with sneakers

Yeah, he's cute. I almost put that one in the poll, but he's been replaced. The new one is more modern/trendy looking, but doesn't have the same appeal.

re: Mascot

I found this on Wikipedia:

"Initially, FreeBSD employed the BSD Daemon as its logo, but in 2005 a competition for a new logo was arranged. On October 8, 2005, the competition finished and the design by Anton K. Gural was chosen as the new FreeBSD logo[4]. The BSD Daemon will remain as the FreeBSD Project mascot."

So the cute devil has not retired yet... fortunately, because I *hate* the new logo!

re: Mascot

I'm from TN, they're all lizards to me. Big Grin

EDIT: Wikipedia: Chameleons (family Chamaeleonidae) are squamates that belong to one of the best-known lizard families.

re: Mascot

Well, chameleons are indeed a family of animals belonging to the suborder of lizards. Like a human is a primate. One is a collection where the other belongs to. In short: a chameleon is a lizard, but a lizard is not necessarily a chameleon.
By the way: a gecko (the Firefox engine) is a lizard too!

i voted for ubuntu, and i don't even use it

i'm surprised that suse's lizard is at the top, don't get me wrong, it's my distro, but i always thought the lizard is a bit retarded

re: Mascot

That's funny, I voted for the Lizard and I don't like/use SUSE.

re: Mascot

Same here.. I've always liked SUSEs reptile. Red Hats logo came in a close second though.

SUSE

I like this suse's little crocodile!

re: SUSE

crocodile? lol

CentOS 5.11 Officially Released, Probably the Last One in the Series

As you all know already, CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources provided by Red Hat. This is the eleventh update for the distribution and probably the last one. It features all the packages from all variants, including Server and Client, and the upstream repositories have been merged into a single one. Red Hat announced less than a month ago the release of their last update for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, 5.11. It stands to reason that CentOS 5.11 will also be the last update in the series.

Opera for Linux to Get a Stable Version Soon

The Opera browser is now based on Chromium and this simple fact has delayed the release of a stable Linux version for more than a year. Now, the Linux platform will finally get a release and some final touches have been made to the client. The developers have improved a number of features that are already available in the browser. For example, users will not be able to drop a PDF file in browser tab that already has a similar file opened, deleting the entries in History now works as it should, the correct font is used all the time, and the new Bookmark feature that has been recently made available has been improved.
